Ways To Sponsor:
If you make a donation of any kind we will acknowledge you or your business on this page as well as on our social media outlets.
1) If you are an organization or venue that is dedicated to outdoor education in some form please contact us. We are looking for resources that we can utilize in our programs (curriculum, workbooks, etc) as well as resources we can pass along to our students. For example we are looking for FREE promotional type items that we can include in our welcome bag.....pencils, mini field guides, brochures, bookmarks, etc. We are also looking for FREE materials that can be passed out in classes, that compliment the topic(s) we are learning about. For example an informational brochure on geology, field guides, water testing kits, etc.
2) Make a monetary donation via GoFund Me.
3) Make a supply/equipment and/or nature related book/curriculum donation, we will accept used or new items. Please contact us for our shipping info or to arrange a time for us to pick up the items. We also have an Amazon wishlist set up for Educating Children Outdoors AZ which lists items we need, these items can be ordered from Amazon and shipped directly to our organization.
4) Sponsor a book(s) for a child. We will be incorporating 2 reading assignments into our program next year. The Navigators will be reading a Sand Hill County Almanac and the Explores will be reading Chloe and the Desert Heroes. Each of these books will be $6 if we order in bulk. Families will be responsible for purchasing their own books so you can help offset the cost by sponsoring a book. Donations can be made via PayPal to email@example.com please note that the donation is for the required book.
We are also seeking sponsors who would like to make a donation of $100 in return for a website sidebar ad and social media highlights over the course of year.
