Support the Great (Roanoke) Outdoors


Home - Donate

The Roanoke Region is reinventing itself for the 21st century as one of the greatest outdoor towns in the United States. Have we arrived? Nah, we’re just getting started.

Roanoke Outside is a 501(c)3 charitable organization working to make your region the capital for world-class, outdoor fun. We started, Get Outside Weekend Update, Blue Ridge Marathon, GO Fest, and now Project Outside. Plus, we’ve been the advocate for the many changes that are making this place more awesome than ever. We’ve got plans for even more exciting events and facilities. And you can be a part of it all.

Your tax-deductible contribution will help us continue to push for a future where Roanoke is the greatest place for outdoor recreation. Contact or 540-343-1550 x 104 with questions.

Shop with us

We definitely encourage everyone to support outdoor shops by buying local, but if you can’t find a local store and have to buy online, please consider buying through one of our online shopping partners: Giving Assistant and Amazon Smile. When you shop through either of these organizations a portion of the purchase price can be donated to the Roanoke Outside Foundation (and it won’t cost you a thing).

You can also link your Kroger card for another automatic donation through the Kroger Community Rewards program. Here’s how:

  • Visit (if you already have a Kroger account, just log in).
  • Enter organization number 88409 or Roanoke Outside and confirm.
  • Once enrolled, you will see your organization’s name on the right side of your information page (you can also see how much you have personally contributed each quarter).
  • Do you use your phone number at the register? Call 800-576-4377, select option 4.

Consignment for a Cause (sell your gear for us)

Got some old outdoor gear laying around? Roanoke Mountain Adventures is helping you give back to the community with the donation of used gear to area nonprofits (including us). Through their outdoor gear charitable program, when you sell items on consignment at RMA’s outdoor gear consignment shop, you can designate that some – or all – of the proceeds go to a participating charitable organization. Learn more.

Together, we can make ours a GREAT outdoors.
