The Kurt Hahn Society

Named after the legendary founder of Outward Bound, the Kurt Hahn Society honors the extraordinary impact of those who choose to make a legacy gift to North Carolina Outward Bound School (NCOBS.)

Members of the Kurt Hahn Society are a select "crew" of supporters who have chosen to link their personal legacy to the transformational impact of Outward Bound. Through their support, Kurt Hahn Society members preserve Outward Bound's timeless approach to experiential education and character development, ensuring lasting impact on students for generations to come. 

You can be recognized as a member of the Kurt Hahn Society by planning for a future gift to NCOBS, including:

  • Bequests
  • Charitable trusts or gift annuities
  • Life insurance beneficiary designations
  • IRA or retirement plan beneficiary designations
  • Life estate (gift of personal residence)

In addition to the satisfaction that comes with having an enduring impact. Kurt Hahn Society Members enjoy special recognition in our annual report and other publications, and in our "Legacy Garden" at the Town Office in Asheville, NC.
