Go Fund Me 2023 Holiday Campaign !
This is a fundraiser for an exciting wilderness hiking program for at-risk middle and high school kids suffering from mental and/or drug issues, or other life-challenges beyond their control. For a more complete story and background information, please view the summary article at the following link:
In accordance with our Special Activity Permit from Grandfather Mountain State Park, we are allowed to have ten students per school group. Based on average expenses over an eight year period, the average cost per student is $450 for the four week course. This includes the cost of professional hike leaders, backpacks, insurance, socks, raincoats, Grandfather Mountain entrance fees, Awards Dinners, high-quality hiking boots, and other similar expenses. So, a full school group of ten students costs $4,500.
We are seeking to raise $9,000 between now and the end of the year. If this amount is raised, it will allow us to serve two additional schools that we have not previously served, and would be a very welcome boost to our program, with brand new opportunities this coming Spring.
With the Holidays rapidly approaching, you may want to consider making a contribution toward this special campaign as a Seasonal gift to a good cause. Any amount contributed is helpful, and very much appreciated !
THANK YOU for considering making a donation to The Jason Project !!!
