How you can donate
A tax-deductible donation to Outward Bound Philadelphia will provide a partial or full scholarship to a deserving student from the greater Philadelphia metropolitan region or any community in PA, NJ or northern DE that you may designate. You can make a secure online donation here. If you prefer, you may also contact us and donate via the phone or regular mail. We also offer individual giving programs as well as team fundraising programs. If your employer has a employee matching gift program, we are a 501c3 tax-deductible organization. Help Outward Bound Philadelphia empower thousands of young people to implement positive change in their city, their communities and their world!
We use Wepay to process online payments. You have the option to pledge and pay instantly and even setup recurring payments.
Thank you to The Arthur Blank Family Foundation, The Barrist Family Foundation and The Drumcliff Foundation in association with Dan Gordon. With the generosity of these sponsors, Philadelphia Outward Bound School is $50,000 closer to reaching our annual fundraising goal!
