Approximately 60% of all people who come to Outward Bound require some form of financial support. Our school at Anakiwa changes lives each day, however the cost of running our operations are far higher than the course fee we charge. We receive no government funding, and therefore rely heavily on the generosity of donors like you.
Whilst the Outward Bound experience is priceless, there is a real cost to running courses at our Anakiwa School. Your legacy will ensure our sustainability and enable us to continue to deliver life-changing programmes.
We know from almost 60 years' of experience that our courses have a life-long impact. Our recent evaluation study of past participants has shown:
Being great doesn’t have to mean coming in first place. Being great can mean picking up someone else when they’re down or offering a helpful hand without acknowledgement. Being great means looking in the mirror and being proud of what you see.

Supporting Outward Bound since 1962 as a donor, Trust Director, Foundation Trustee, and as current Patron, has, on reflection, been very satisfying. This involvement has provided the opportunity to help many young people turn their lives around, and go on to achieve greatness in our communities.
Sir David Levene, Patron of the Outward Bound Trust.
