Our legal structure is one of Financial Membership, and members play an important part in Outward Bound’s governance structure. Each year our membership base elects up to 30 members to our Members Council, whose role is to ensure our Board continues to run Outward Bound under the ethos of Kurt Hahn.
Membership has charitable status, so you are able to claim 1/3 back from Inland Revenue.
Donations received from membership are held in a Membership Scholarship Fund and are used to financially support young people coming to Outward Bound.
Financial year for annual memberships is 1 July to 30 June.
Annual Donation $80 ($54 once rebate claimed)
Life Donation $1,000 ($670 once rebate claimed)
For more information on membership please contact Diane Leyten, Finance & Funding Manager on 044951762 or Email: GOVERNANCE@OUTWARDBOUND.CO.NZ

“Attending Outward Bound allowed me to face my fears, and accept that there are things I simply cannot control. This was so freeing. I am less stressed by my work and home life, and things continue to get better. Without your generosity, I would not be in the position I am in right now.”
