Donation FAQs

Why should I give to the BOEC?

Without you, the BOEC could not provide important therapeutic activities to people with disabilities, serious illness, and at-risk youth.

For over thirty years, the BOEC has offered outdoor experiences for people who are many times excluded from empowering activities and has trained the instructors who work with special populations. Through custom designed curricula, adapted equipment and facilities, specially trained staff, interns, volunteers and financial assistance, BOEC ensures that the power of nature and outdoor activities are accessible to people of all abilities.

BOEC has opened the doors of adventure to people of all abilities and has blazed a trail for traditional programs to incorporate people with differing abilities.

I am interested in making a donation to BOEC. What are the possibilities?

BOEC has many ways to contribute. Donations can be made to the Friends of the BOEC Fund, which provides scholarships and operating funds. Contributions can also be unrestricted, or designated for capital and equipment needs, or towards the BOEC Permanent Endowment. A gift can also be made in memory or in honor of someone special. In this case an acknowledgment will be sent to the donor and a special card will be sent to the honoree or their family in recognition of the gift.
