The NOLS Endowment is funding set aside in perpetuity to support the mission of the school. It’s made up of an array of gifts and accrued interest, and is permanently invested. The return earned on the investment can be used by NOLS for a variety of needs. Through the NOLS Endowment, a single gift provides continued support to the school in perpetuity. Because our endowment contains provisions that prohibit spending the principal, it provides important long-term stability, allowing NOLS to stay focused on its mission regardless of changing annual pressures or economic downturns.
How to Participate
You can contribute to the NOLS Endowment by making a gift to the fund as a whole, or—with a minimum pledge or gift of $125,000—establishing your own endowed scholarship.
Contact the development office at 800-332-4280 or email@example.com.
Step Forward: The Campaign for NOLS is a $30 million comprehensive campaign. It’s our commitment to you and future students to expand access to NOLS to people from all backgrounds. We’ll do this through new partnerships, outreach, and scholarships, while continuing to invest in all that makes NOLS exceptional. Broadening access to the outdoors, however, while growing the school to meet current and future needs will require your help.

The Wyss Campus is our primary location for Wilderness EMT training. It is the only facility in the world built from the ground up specifically for wilderness medicine instruction—and it’s LEED Platinum certified. Students live, study, and practice skills in one integrated location that serves all their needs.
We have served over 3,000 students at the Wyss Campus since it was built in 2011, with overwhelmingly positive outcomes. Now, we must expand to serve everyone who seeks these life-saving skills.
The expansion will double student housing to reach full capacity, create instructor housing on the campus, and build a student center to enhance campus life. We planned for this growth in the initial construction. Now it’s time to finish the job.
