Got To Get Out Adventure Scholarship
Got To Get Out is an adventure group inspiring people to get outdoors, discovering new places and make new friends. Since 2015 over 1,200 people have attended more than 90 events all around New Zealand and also to Nepal. Many of these trips are free to attend, but other trips do come at a cost and so Got To Get Out wants to make it easier for those people who have Got To Get Out – but need a hand.
The Got To Get Out Adventure Scholarship is a fund hosted on the Give a Little page where adventurers that come on our trips can donate if they wish.
This optional donation from those who have attended our trips will quickly build a pool of money that will be offered via our Facebook page. This fund will pay for one or a certain number of people to attend an event free of charge.
Got To Get Out’s group founder, Robert Bruce (Kiwi bank New Zealander of the year, Local hero) says that “We want to lower the barrier of entry for getting people outdoors and encourage as many people as possible to get out into nature. We know not everyone can afford outdoors activities or gear so our way of helping is the Got To Get Out Adventure Scholarship. We hope that our Got To Get Out community gives as much as they can afford, there’s no pressure to give but every bit will help.”
