Due to the current state of affairs and preexisting cuts to traditionally reliable funding sources this year, the future of Nevada Outdoor School is in turmoil and we are facing the real and unfortunate reality of shutting down. We need community support through monetary donations now to keep our doors open and ensure the future of Nevada Outdoor School.
Current Funding Needs:
1 month of operating expenses: $46,522 $1,550 per day
Cost of NOS Staff/AmeriCorps Naturalists currently helping to package food in our communities and provide educational content: $40,206 per month
Cost of Facilities (even though we are all working from home, we still have to pay rent and utilities): $3,066 per month
Cost of Liability Insurance: $3,250 a month
Nevada Outdoor School programs provide real and important value to the communities we serve, providing experiential outdoor education to our local youth.
We are working hard right now to help package food relief to families in need in our communities, and ensuring our students are well fed and taken care of.
While we have to practice social distancing, this does not mean the education has to stop. We can continue to help our youth, teachers and parents by providing them outdoor education through online videos and lessons. This will help our youth be able to utilize this time to slow down, better themselves, and appreciate and care for our natural world.
Your action is needed now for the future of our organization and outdoor education in Nevada.
Your monetary gift of any size will help us continue to serve, support, and educate our students.
Thank you for your support of Nevada Outdoor School during these urgent times.
