to support our mission
As a non-profit organization, Tucson ICO accepts both monetary and equipment (in kind) donations. These donations are used primarily to conduct and fund youth group outings. Outing costs can include transportation, park or facility entry fees, food and supplies. In addition, a small amount of our yearly budget goes to training new volunteers and keeping our skills up to date. This might include first aid training or other leadership training programs.
As you probably know, the past few years has seen a remarkable drop in grant funding and Tucson ICO has had to find other sources of income to continue our mission. Last year, our ICO chapter spent over $10,000 to fund trips for youth. Please help us continue our outings. All donations are tax-deductible through the Sierra Club Foundation under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
You can make a tax-deductible financial contribution to Tucson ICO directly through the National Sierra Club website. Simply click on the big orange button below and you will be directed to a secure website. It's a fast, safe and simple way to help our mission.
equipment (in-kind) donation
As far as gear is concerned, ICO gladly accepts outdoor gear (e.g., camping equipment, tents, backpacks, etc.) and clothing for our participants (warm clothes, backpack clothes, socks, etc.) so long as they are in really good condition. We feel it is important that our participants and leaders have quality, reliable gear for our outings. For equipment donations, please email our equipment manager Mike McLeroy.
