Gear & Cheer Sponsorship Opportunities

Our annual fundraiser, Gear and Cheer, is going virtual this year. But don’t worry – we’re still bringing together our community of supporters to celebrate the work that we’re doing and the people we have impacted. All money raised goes towards getting people who are excluded from or discriminated against in the outdoors onto trails and rocks in a physically and emotionally healthy way.

Your sponsorship of this event will provide your company with valuable opportunities to get in front of our audience: influential people with an ever-growing presence in our community and in the outdoor recreation market. In addition to connecting with the Women’s Wilderness community, this event will feature a keynote Q&A with renowned climber and coach Nina Williams, games, music, a custom cocktail, and a live auction for gear, trips, and more!

Why Your Support Matters

Two-thirds of all girls who participate in our programs receive need-based financial aid. In our 20-year history, we have NEVER turned away a girl in financial need. We continue to lead the way, offering programs to communities that traditionally have not had access to the outdoors. Your support at Gear & Cheer will not only help girls get outside, but also be an opportunity to show brand alignment with our mission, network with influential members of the outdoor community, and allow your company to join the ranks of our other sponsors such as: Davita (Fortune 500 company), Osprey and Salomon (major outdoor brands), Frasca, Mountain Sun and Feral Mountaineering (Front Range companies).
