“No one will protect what they don't care about; and no one will care about what they have never experiened”
The Pure Outdoor Foundation offers courses, training and activities delivered by Pure Outdoor to help enable people access the outdoors who would not usually be able to. We feel the synergy between social and environmental gain means the organisation will have multiple benefits for society.
Pure Outdoor employees spend 5% of their time delivering activities and training on behalf of the Pure Outdoor Foundation, providing places on courses, tuition, guiding and mentoring.
Specific projects are the main focus of any fundraising activities and all fundraising activities are targeted to any of the projects at any given time. All projects will link back to the mission statement of the group.
We're setting up our new scheme 'First Steps in the Outdoors' and are looking to provide grant funded places on entry level courses to help people get over the initial barriers to heading out into the natural world! Please keep an eye out on this page for updates over the next few weeks (14/03/2023)
We've donated £11,406 worth of activities, training and courses to the Pure Outdoor Foundation. This will be delivered via a combination of Pure Outdoor Staff delivering grant funded activities and Pure Outdoor funding places on courses delivered via 3rd parties.
We donated £5439 worth of activities, training and courses to the Pure Outdoor Foundation. This was issued as 'services in kind' donations to various beneficiaries.
To date in this 'Pledge Year' we have applied credit to the following value from the Pure Outdoor Pledge to the following activities:
>The Pure Outdoor Building Leaders Grant:
The building leaders grant was an excellent process and we feel that we managed to support a great number of participants throughout the year. As much as we aspire to continue to support underrepresented groups in a variety of ways, the Pure Outdoor Foundation grant process will be changing during 2023/2024 so that we are working directly with organisations that we feel we can support in a way with greater impact. Please watch this space in the future in the event that we bring this scheme back.
> Elm Tree School: Additional Instructors provided to cover their school trip to ensure access to the outdoors for a group that had a trip cancelled by another provider.
> 1st Chapel Scout Group: Additional Instructors provided towards a climbing day to maximise the number of participants getting involved.
> "Climbing for Rough Sleepers" - Roundabout: Instructor days delivered towards 1:1 experiences to give people an opportunity.
