Ephesians 6 :  5-8

"Serve with sincerity of
heart...doing the will of
God from your heart.  
Serve wholeheartedly,
as if you were serving
the Lord, not men,
because you know that
the Lord will reward
everyone for whatever
good he does."
Nonprofit organization directed by Al Smith
to work with communities, business, and organizations
for the purpose of organizing outdoor events for people with disabilities and youngsters.

By joining with many partners in the community everyone benefits.  These
events create good will throughout the local area.  They are designed to be
safe, fun, educational, and will receive positive reviews by the local media.
Getting to know ... Serve Outdoors, Inc.
Many people with
disabilities would like to
experience outdoor
recreation.  Often they
have never had the
opportunity or the
assistance to do so.

Youngsters don't have
the same opportunities
as their fathers and
grandfathers had to
learn outdoor skills and
even more importantly
they need to be taught
ethics, safety, and
respect for wildlife.

Our elders depended on
our abundant natural
resources to enhance
their lives.  They need
some help to experience
and relive those days
gone past.

Veterans with
disabilities deserve
everything we can give
them.  Many veterans
are returning home with
a disability and will want
to return to the woods
and waters and now may
need a little help from
their friends.

Q: How is Serve Outdoors funded?
Serve Outdoors runs on a shoestring budget.  
There is no corporate office building, no field staff
salaries, no overpaid TV spokesperson...all funds
raised go toward completing the mission!  Grant
funding is sought and money donated by individuals
and chapters helps with the organizations expenses.

Q:  Where does the money go that is raised by the
Most of the money raised by a chapter stays with the
individual chapter!  Each chapter has its own bank
account in which the chapter officers are responsible
Serve Outdoors pays for the Event Liability insurance
for each chapter and their nonprofit status.  Tax
returns are filed on behalf of each chapter.  Each
chapter is asked to contribute to Serve Outdoors their
share of these expenses.

Q:  Are all the events done by Serve Outdoors
No!  Serve Outdoors hosts several events each year
without an affiliated chapter in the local area.  Many
groups that help with these non-chapter events are
already affiliated with another organization and
sometimes a private business wants to partner with
Serve Outdoors in hosting an event.  These events are
funded by money from the local community and also
by Serve Outdoors.

Q:  Do you have to be a member to participate?
No!  Serve Outdoors is open to all.  
There is no membership fee.

Q:  How much does it cost to register for an event?
Nothing!  However, participants must purchase their
own hunting or fishing license and pay for any lodging
needed.  Sometimes sponsorship money can be used to
help defray these costs to the participants.
