Bogong Equipment – who do we support?
Bogong and its owners support a number of causes that are of our choosing. These causes mainly support the great outdoors and our outdoor environments which are the places that we all know and love. By supporting such causes we are in turn supporting you our customers. We have also been supporting the people of Nepal for some time. This support needs to be ongoing and sustainable.
Specifically we support:
Bush Heritage. Bush Heritage is an organisation that purchases and manages land to return it to environmental health and for conservation outcomes.
The Wilderness Society. Australia’s leading advocate for wilderness. Wild and free places are important.
CliffCare. A non-profit organisation that aims to look after the rock climbing environment.
Does Bogong sponsor individuals?
Raising money for your favourite cause while indulging in one of your favourite adventure activities – hiking, cycling, climbing mountains, adventure travelling – is a perfect fit. It’s little wonder then that so many individuals commit themselves to the challenge of taking on an outdoor adventure, often in more forbidding territory than most people would ever contemplate.
And it's also little wonder that hundreds of adventurers contact Bogong Equipment every year, asking us to support a whole range of worthwhile adventure related projects, clubs, events, races and endeavours. Often these are linked to any of a plethora of fundraising activities. We feel 100% empathy with such ventures. After all, all of us work at Bogong Equipment because we are passionate about the outdoors.
However given the commitments outlined above, we hope you understand why, even though we are with you in spirit, we politely decline nearly every individual request for sponsorship. We know you are passionate about the causes you have chosen. We in turn are passionate about the ones we support.
