BOULDER, CO. November 17, 2016– Camber Outdoors (formerly OIWC) will launch its first ever Annual Fund drive on November 29, in partnership with #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities, and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide.
Celebrating 20 years, Camber Outdoors is the only organization directly linking the impact of women business leaders on the inclusion and increase of women and families participating in the outdoors. Donations will sustain the growth and impact of the organization’s work and will have an immediate effect on Camber Outdoors’ ability to create and develop strategic programs to their full potential.
“I’ve been honored to be a part of Camber Outdoors board of directors for several years and have seen the transformation and impact of the programs on individuals at every stage of their career path, from first job to senior leaders,” aid Julia Day, Camber Outdoors, board chair and NPD Group Senior Executive Director of Sports. “We’re very grateful and encouraged by the strong support we’ve seen from individuals–men and women– and organizations to expand Camber Outdoors positive impact.”
