As awareness about the importance of 'no child left inside' grows and 'screen time' concerns persist, demand from our agency partners in Dorchester and East Boston has increased, and new groups are asking to work with us. Additional trips mean more kids who would not otherwise have the opportunity are experiencing the outdoors and life beyond their neighborhoods. It also means your support is more important than ever.
Please consider an online donation to help provide transportation, food, equipment, and leader training to keep Boston ICO strong. Because we have no paid staff and no overhead, 100% of your contributions to The Sierra Club Foundation for the Boston ICO program go directly to fund outings.
Here are examples of what your tax-deductible gift can accomplish:
- $25: Rents a canoe for a 3 hour paddle, or a pair of snowshoes for a day
- $50: Covers public transportation to an outings destination for all kids and volunteers
- $100: Provides a healthy lunch for 20 kids during a weekend outing
- $450: Rents a bus to take kids and volunteers on a trip not accessible by public transportation, such as a hiking trip to Mount Monadnock
