Check to see if your employer will match your donation or ask your employer to host an event or to sponsor Footpath. Some companies will decide to host their holiday event or golf outing and give proceeds to Footpath! If this is something that interests you, we’d love to chat and help!
During a Friendraiser, you can invite a couple of friends to coffee or a happy hour to tell them about Footpath. You can also invite Footpath to a group you’d like for us to present to. Friendraisers are excellent ways to spread Footpath’s message.

Experiencing the great outdoors relieves stress and anxiety and improves our overall well-being. Sadly, under-served children living in urban areas are often not able to enjoy nature, and we want to change that. Due to a variety of barriers, including the lack of access to green space and lack of transportation, many children do not have the opportunity to connect to nature. We created Outdoor Connection Kits to change this. Together, we can connect kids to nature in a new innovative way.
To make this happen- we need your help! You have the opportunity to provide kits to children living in low income communities throughout the spring and summer.
Each kit contains an exciting lesson and supplies to get kids outside and will contain a wide array of fun, educational and social-emotional well-being materials. Example contents may include items such as: bird feeder making materials, chalk, jump rope, yard games, and nature art supplies.
Our lessons curriculum includes tons of fun activities AND lessons on stress reduction, mindfulness, and anxiety-reducing coping skills.
You connect a child to nature by giving them a Footpath Outdoor Connection Kit! Each season costs $100 per child. Children desperately need a connection to nature right now. You can make that happen.
You can ensure a child has all he or she needs at camp. Almost all of our campers do not have the gear they need such as sleeping bags, beach towels, ponchos, flashlights and bug spray. Many of our children come from homes where there aren’t extra towels or blankets that could be taken to camp since the family at home needs them. Giving children a Camp Pack eliminates their worries that they won’t be prepared or that they won’t have the same stuff as another camper. This eases their minds as they begin an unfamiliar experience.
You can help! We need your in-kind or financial donations to make sure our kids are ready. Your camp pack supplies give kids piece of mind.
Items needed for each pack (All items must be new)
Towels- beach and shower
Twin Sheets- optional
Some items are community items that can be shared such as:
Shampoo & Conditioner
We also need monetary donations or gift cards to purchase items that campers may not own but need on an as-needed basis. It’s common for our campers to need bathing suits, shower shoes and sweatshirts.
