Why Give!? Top 6 Reasons

During the months of November and December in the Pikes Peak region, the seasons change from fall to winter. But it is also a special time of year for 75 local nonprofits including Catamount Institute. We were honored to be selected as one of 2017 Give! the campaign’s chosen non-profits. This exciting end of year giving campaign is designed to make philanthropy fun! There are rewards for giving over $25 ($10 if you are under 18) and the more you give the better the rewards.

All funds raised for Catamount Institute support our outdoor education programs. Connecting local children to nature by building positive relationships, helping them realize their potential to have great influence on our environment and the world around them.

Here are our top 6 reasons you should give to Catamount Institute through the 2017 Give Campaign.

  • Catamount Institute prides itself on providing high-quality education. All our lessons are age appropriate and follow Colorado state academic standards.
  • In Colorado, we love the outdoors and Catamount Institute is introducing a new generation to that passion. Kids today are spending more and more time in front of screens and staying indoors. We are working hard to change that trend.
  • We have been around for over 20 years! Catamount Institute was founded in 1997. Since then our programs keep growing year after year reaching more students across the Front Range and beyond.
  • Not only do we help kids get outside but we teach them an appreciation of how to preserve and improve the outdoors for others.
  • By giving you help us remove the financial barrier that can exist for some families who want to send their child to summer camp or offset the cost of a field trip for a teacher at a low income school.
  • Through every donation made, someone benefits from that donation and it causes a ripple of positivity that can transform someone’s life. Through those acts of charitable giving, it makes the world a better place.
