The Adventure Fund

I am no elitist adventurer. I have great respect for those who really push the limits at the Poles, in the mountains, or at sea. But I am also passionate about encouraging normal people (like me!) to chase adventures of their own.

So I certainly approve of the Adventure Fund, a spin-off of Sidetracked, the lovely Adventure-Porn magazine.

The Adventure Fund, in association with Sidetracked Magazine, is an annual grant established to support individuals or groups who display a creative and innovative approach towards adventurous travel and expeditioning. Whilst many trusts and grants support specific activities that lead on to exciting exploits, very few organisations focus exclusively on supporting the spirit of adventure in itself, whatever you may be doing and wherever you may be heading.

The Fund aims to encourage applicants to hold a creative approach; to believe that adventure can be had just as easily in Dorset as it can in Dushanbe.

The Adventure Fund is a small grant established by adventure lovers, for adventure lovers. Every penny donated goes straight into supporting an expedition, so the more we can collectively put into it, the more successful recipients of the grant will be able to get out.

If you haven’t seen Sidetracked yet, here is the latest edition. If you are planning an expedition why not apply for a grant? And, if you enjoy adventuring vicariously and have a couple of bob to spare, you can make a donation -however small- here.

I am all in favour of anything that helps people pursue adventures of their own. If you feel the same way, perhaps you can quickly share this link on Twitter or Facebook. Simply click on the relevant icon below. Thank you!

    Thank you for your support Al. Very much appreciated! Hopefully we can help and encourage some inspiring new adventurers to get out there.

  2. I love this idea. Please let me know if we can help promote it in any way. Our readership is pretty tiny at the moment, but every little helps right?
