Turn your next adventure into a fundraiser that gives back by expanding access to wilderness and outdoor education programs for pre-teen and teenage girls. Join a community that is transforming their passion and helping to seed self-esteem, inner strength, and the tenacity to embrace the unexpected in the next generation of young women.
Making up 80% of the Ambassador cohort, these Ambassadors will plan their adventure, set up and run their fundraiser with a goal of $3,000, and complete their adventure with support from TCP team in the form of resources, check-ins, and coaching.
New to TCP in 2022 and designed for individuals who wish to fundraise as an Ambassador but may need additional logistical support in meeting their adventure or fundraising goal, Ambassadors may self-select at the time of application to fundraise for a scaled goal of $2,000-$2,500, receive more hands-on adventure planning support from an Ambassador alumni mentor, and attend more frequent 1-1 meetings with TCP staff. Approximately 20% of the 2022 Ambassador cohort can be New Adventurers.*
*As of 2022, TCP cannot provide training for adventures and does not take any responsibility for the safety of Ambassadors on their adventure. This option of the Ambassador program is not designed for individuals who are completely new to an activity or who may not otherwise go on an adventure, but rather for those who need a little extra planning or fundraising support to make a feasible adventure happen. In the future, TCP hopes to be able to offer training to New Adventurers.
Empower young women around the country by starting your own adventure fundraiser.
From a long-standing bucket list trip to a challenging personal goal that takes place in your own backyard, we’ll help you envision your “get out, give back” adventure and dial in the details.
We’ll help you set up a crowdfunding campaign and spread the word about your plan to catalyze an outdoor adventure into a cause for good.
Launch time! We’ll be with you each step of the way as you start your fundraising campaign, we’ll get your story out through our growing network, and give you the tools to help you reach your fundraising goal.
When the start day finally arrives, it’s time to focus on the present and soak in every moment of your adventure! Doing good and having fun outside is an unbeatable combo, and The Cairn Project community will be cheering you on even while you’re off the grid!
The proceeds of adventure fundraisers support our charitable grants program – funding to community-based groups around the country that are getting girls out biking, backpacking, rock climbing, and much more! In many cases, support from The Cairn Project provides increased scholarships for these programs.
