Common Ground Outdoor Adventures Cards with a Cause is a beloved local fundraiser. We have teamed up with local artist Jerry Fuhriman and Square One Printing to bring you over 20 scenes from the Cache Valley area. As all of the materials are donated, 100% of the proceeds benefit Common Ground’s programs.
We are always in need of copy paper, ink cartridges, pens and other office supplies. Your contributions help us offset administrative expenses.
All fundraising events include silent or live auctions. Your in-kind donation is a great way to market your business and help us raise needed funds.
Adaptive and non-adaptive recreation equipment is constantly changing and wearing out. We need things like tents, sleeping bags, helmets, camp chairs on a regular basis. We have an ongoing list of adaptive bike and ski needs that range in cost up to $8,000. Check with our staff to see what is currently needed.
Donations of dry goods such as bread, pasta, canned goods, paper towels, dish soap, fresh vegetables, meat products, snacks and so on are used to offset program costs. We welcome your contributions throughout the year. Gift cards to local grocery stores are also very helpful.
