In-Kind Donations

Money talks but money isn’t everything! Want to help but don’t know how to without emptying your wallet? Consider an in-kind donation. Challenge Accepted seeks donations for services, donating airline miles for veterans to travel to/from events or providing lodging if you’re a property owner in the event area are other huge ways to help!

Challenge Accepted spends time at events like the Snowbound Expo advocating for disabled veterans, educating the public on veteran-related topics, getting the word out about Challenge Accepted and…of course ….fundraising! Maybe you have something to donate for a raffle item like new snowboarding equipment, a gift certificate to your own business/services, a weekend at your vacation home (for all those AirBnb or VRBO folks!).

Email us at to set up your in-kind donations!
