Help FLC Launch This Adventure - Double Your Impact!

Fort Lewis College has a rare opportunity to acquire a river enterprise. A very generous couple has pledged $25,000 in matching funds to launch this effort. For example, your $50 donation will mean $100 for the river company.

Through the purchase of the river company, FLC will hold the permits and equipment to outfit groups of up to 60 students, staff, and alumni to take multi-day academic and adventure trips. FLC will have exclusive permits to launch on the San Juan, Salt, and Chama rivers allowing long-term access into these incredible natural laboratories. 

 This unprecedented opportunity will transform the student experience at Fort Lewis College.

  • Access to these rivers will help boost recruitment, retention, curriculum development across campus, and alumni/donor experiences. 
  • Departments that will benefit include Adventure Education, Anthropology, Art, Biology, Business, Environmental Science, Geology, Outdoor Pursuits, Teacher Education, and more. 
  • River access is a differentiator that other institutions are unlikely to match.
  • All students will have the opportunity to participate and benefit from this program.

Your gift will strengthen the bond between academics and adventure at Fort Lewis College for years to come. Please donate by June 30.

Thank you, 

Dolph Kuss, Founder of Outdoor Pursuits

Brett Davis, Director of Outdoor Pursuits
