Your gift lasts a lifetime...

Your support of North Carolina Outward Bound School helps to build strong communities, one person at a time. This past year, we provided scholarship support for 1,756 students - 39% of our students. Thank you for making this life-changing experience available to participants from all backgrounds.

We work hard to keep our tuition costs as low as possible. General operating support and scholarship support are both vital to this level of scholarship outreach. With your general operating support, we are able to upgrade field gear, operate scholarship programs in many urban regions, cultivate friends, maintain our facilities, and cover the myriad of other costs we incur annually. Your general scholarship support goes directly to tuition costs for deserving students. North Carolina Outward Bound School’s tax ID number is 56-0857708. We are so grateful for your support.
