Set Up Fundraiser

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.

Who This Supports

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.
