Your Support Transforms Lives
COBS empowers students from all backgrounds to discover skills that transfer from the field to real life, skills that are indispensable for becoming active community members: strength of character, the ability to lead, confidence, and a determination to serve the community.
COBS dreams big – we truly believe there is more in us than we know. These dreams become reality through investment and partnership. Together, we get more students on course, raise the bar of our program quality and staff training, and grow the capacity of our facilities and programs to meet the needs of the school and its future.
There are many ways to support the Colorado Outward Bound School.
Make a donation to support our students, capital projects, or simply give where it is most needed.
You may mail a check payable to:
Colorado Outward Bound School
5161 Sheridan Blvd
Denver, CO 80212
To make a gift by credit card over the phone or make a gift of stock, you may contact:

Consider a legacy gift
When it comes to supporting the Colorado Outward Bound School, there are many ways to give beyond writing a check. By including COBS in your estate or financial plans, you can assure a strong future of COBS and the next generation of students. So often you can have a far larger impact by giving in this alternative way.
For more information on how to include COBS in your plans or to let us know that we are already in your plans, please contact Darcy Lattof at 303-676-8237 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Gear for our students
Local youth from our partner schools and other students need gear for their Colorado Outward Bound School expedition. We are happy to accept durable gear that is in good condition, such as:
Synthetic layers (long sleeve and short sleeve shirts, especially smalls and mediums, and pants)
Quick dry pants or zipoffs
Non-down puffy jackets
Rain jackets and pants (smalls, mediums, and larges in particular)
Warm gloves with shells and liners
COBS typically hosts a service project each summer at its legacy basecamp in Marble, Colorado, the birthplace of Outward Bound in the United States.
We also have opportunities for other skilled volunteers on occasion. Please email email@example.com if you are interested in either of these opportunities.
