Campaign NOLS: Endowing Our Core Values is a $20 million campaign made up of $15 million to strengthen our endowment and $5 million for annual philanthropic support.
This campaign will not only help us achieve the goals we have set for ourselves, but it will also allow NOLS to financially prepare for the future.
Storms on an expedition are inevitable and so, clearly, are the fiscal ebbs and flows that affect endowments. But we believe in what we teach in the field—the necessity of taking the long view, of looking at the big picture.
We recognize that financial stability happens over time, not overnight. We also recognize that putting the right pieces into place today will foster such stability down the road.
Our Place on the Map
As we move into the final year of our campaign, we have just under $1.5 million left to reach our capstone challenge of $750,000 by December 31, 2013.
Naming Opportunities: This capital campaign will succeed only with the support of the entire NOLS community. These naming opportunities allow us to recognize those most instrumental in building the firm foundation for the school's continued excellence.

The Campaign NOLS Steering Committee is made up of members from both NOLS' Board of Trustees as well as the Advisory Council. Thank you to all of our current steering committee members:

“While we are encouraged and gratified by the fantastic support NOLS has received during the campaign, we have some work to do in the final year. I can think of few better uses of philanthropic dollars than enabling those who would otherwise be unable to experience NOLS to do so—living and learning in the outdoor classroom, developing leadership skills, and building character. These young men and women are our future. The case is very compelling.”
-Greg Avis, Campaign NOLS National Steering Committee Chair
