RAISED FOR NON-PROFITS SINCE 2008!
I want to tell you about why I started Over The Edge.
Over The Edge was begun to give back to three local non-profits in Nova Scotia, Canada. With a background in adventure sport, I thought it would be fun to invite my friends and the Halifax business community to the roof of the tallest building, charge them $1,000.00 and get them to climb down it. So, we did, and we raised almost $70,000 for local charities.
I was hooked.
Making the decision to expand into the US in 2008 was when we began even to consider that Over The Edge could make an impact – not only by helping our clients fundraise but helping them expand their donor lists outside of their traditional base through these unique events.
We hosted events all over the US; Atlanta, Michigan, Colorado. We were coast-to-coast. Then we did something crazy. We set a goal to help raise $50 million for charities and non-profits by 2018.
Honestly, $50 million seemed like a pretty ambitious number. Hitting it by 2018 was even more ambitious. But I knew we could do it, because I knew how much our clients needed us to.
We hit our target by 2016.
The success of our organisation has largely been built on the passion and expertise of our staff. Their drive and commitment to our clients are what makes each event we hold a success. And it’s why our customers keep coming back for more.
We’ve held events with some of the largest property owners and managers in the world such as Hyatt, Hilton, Westin, Sheraton, Parmenter, Rosemont Gemini and Marriott.
Today, Over The Edge continues its commitment to help non-profits and charities meet their fundraising goals with our unique adventure experience. We’ve expanded and now also help businesses with their team-building and conference event’s needs.
I’d like to invite you to start your next adventure, and go Over The Edge with us.
You’ll never look back
