Two Coyotes Joins #GivingTuesday Movement

Two Coyotes Wilderness School has joined the global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity. Occurring this year on November 27, #GivingTuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. The day is meant to inspire people to collaborate in improving their local communities and give back in impactful ways to the charities and causes they support.
“This year, we invite you to help support children of all ages, in all communities, by championing the Two Coyotes’ goal of bringing the inherent power of nature to as many communities as possible,” says Thomas Case, president of the Two Coyotes’ board of directors. “We believe no one should be turned away from programming based on income. Your generous donation will help ensure that Two Coyotes programming is available to all children by supporting our scholarship fund.”
The fundraising activities support scholarship funds for families in need, the hiring of program staff to maintain a staff-to-student ratio of 1:6 and more. The donations make an impact in Two Coyotes’ programs with $10 paying for a knife, or flint and steel; $50 for tarps, rope and cooking supplies; $125 for a staff person to be trained in first aid and CPR; and $365 to send a child to camp. It costs $500 for a bus to bring a school group to a local park, while $750 pays one of the lead mentors for five days of programming. Become a major funding partner for an eight-day urban school collaboration for $6,000.
