THE ENDURANCE FUND
In response to a program revenue shortfall resulting from in-person-activity restrictions, we have created the Endurance Fund to raise $200,000 in support of our ability to continue meeting the needs of the Adventure Unlimited community.
In-person-activity restrictions have required A/U Ranches and DiscoveryBound programs to retool with brand-new formats and also cancel a number of in-person events. Gratefully, this challenge has opened opportunities for serving new populations in new ways. But it also significantly reduced the revenue we receive from these programs.
To keep our staff and operations intact, meeting the ongoing needs of the Adventure Unlimited community, we have created the Endurance Fund.
Our participants thrive in the experiences DiscoveryBound and the A/U Ranches provide. Those experiences, based on our mission of “Opening Windows to God,” sustain them and help them endure to find healing in every challenge.
For instance, Nico, a past DiscoveryBound participant who was a high school camper at the A/U Ranches last year, experienced a transformative healing during a challenging mountain run. This summer, Nico returned to the A/U Ranches as a staff member, blessing others through the effects of his spiritual growth that bloomed all year.
Note: Some of this video was recorded in 2019, prior to social distance requirements of 2020.
A donation to the Endurance Fund will allow these participants and staff (like Nico), who this year have faced and overcome challenges in a constantly shifting landscape, to continue receiving the blessings of Adventure Unlimited programs.
Adventure Unlimited Foundation, serving DiscoveryBound and the A/U Ranches, is the fundraising arm of Adventure Unlimited, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization.
