Today I thought it would be appropriate to start a thread to share information about organizations we might choose to support if we follow this Adventure Racing discussion forum.

First is our host, Attackpoint. This site has been managed for years by Ken Walker Jr., a busy runner and orienteer with a day job and a family. You can use it for free but for an annual donation of $25 U.S. or more, you get access to bonus features like GPS data uploads, privacy controls, removal of ads, highlighting of threads with unread messages, etc. Plus there's that warm feeling you get when you support a really good thing! Donations are gratefully accepted here.

Sleepmonsters is an international news network reporting on adventure sports. They send reporters around the world to bring us information, photos and video. They also host an events calendar and post gear info. We can support their work via their Patreon campaign or by making a single donation through Paypal.

Btw if you looked at the first version of their Patreon campaign, the base level of support ($8 U.S./month) was high compared to some other campaigns I support. They've now added a $3 U.S. per month "Coffee Cuppers & Dot Watchers" level of support. Hopefully the smaller amount (the price of one large coffee) will attract more supporters and help them continue their good work.

Orienteering Canada is surprisingly quiet about their ability to issue charitable tax receipts for donations. Given how tight budgets are in the orienteering community, I'd expect them to pester us but they never do.

"Orienteering Canada will mail or email you a tax receipt. Orienteering Canada is a Canadian Registered Amateur Athletic Association, as defined under the Income Tax Act, and as such is able to issue tax receipts to people (individuals and corporations) making donations to the organization."

There are several ways to donate to Orienteering Canada.

I expect OUSA has a similar status but I'm not familiar with that.

Any other organizations that adventure athletes might consider supporting?

Well... if anyone is interested. My hosting fees for the podcast are 250.00 a year and I just can't seem to get or Squarespace to advertise.
