We remain dedicated to provide opportunities for all ethnic and socio economic communities and abilities. In addition to supporting the many young people who just need a small ‘hand up’ with their fundraising, we also work with schools and community partners to provide opportunities for their young people to come to Outward Bound, most of who would financially be unable to fund an Outward Bound experience.
30% of our course mix is provided by community partners, many of whom are fully funded. This equates to $1.5 million per annum.
Scholarship funding for our students is sourced from:
Membership, gifting to our Foundation pathway, donations received to our Outward Bound Supporters programme, scholarships set up by individuals and/or other organisations, specific donations received; and the Outward Bound Trust of New Zealand Foundation.
