Camber Outdoors Annual Fund 2016



We’ve passed a great milestone this year. Celebrating 20 years, we launched Camber Outdoors (formerly OIWC)– still the leading non-profit organization with a mission to achieve equality for all women in the outdoors from backcountry to boardroom. What does this mean? We are dedicated to creating active-outdoor industries where women thrive. 

Will you help us shape the future by making a donation today?  When you give, you’ll help expand programs like the cross-industry mentorship program, providing need-based scholarships, fueling advancement opportunities. Your gift to The Camber Outdoors Annual Fund will also help take Camber Exchanges–our most popular program– to new cities, organizations and individuals. I hope you’ll consider making a gift today and join hundreds of other supporters–men and women– who support these critical initiatives taking place across the country and throughout the active-outdoor industries.

With gratitude,

Deanne     Deanne Buck, Executive Director

OUR GOAL: $50,000

“Attending Camber Outdoors events inspires me in every way – to learn more, read more, connect more and to try and be a better person in every aspect of my life.”

–Jenn D. Camber Outdoors donor


After 20 years OIWC became Camber Outdoors, with a vision to shape the future of Everyone’s Outdoors for the next generation of outdoor enthusiasts.  The mission is even more relevant and important today, but membership covers only 40% of program costs. Donations from individuals like you, as well as foundation grants, charitable gift funds and additional corporate support help us deliver on our events and programs.


“The Mentoring Program has been an incredible experience. Not only has it been instrumental in guiding my current and future career, but it has given me reason, focus and enthusiasm to drive my career forward. I have made a special bond with my mentor and I am confident that we will stay in contact for many years to come. Huge kudos and thanks to Camber Outdoors for their passion for and execution of a great program!”

–Robin H. CIO and Mentorship Program Participant
