What is Over The Edge?

Over The Edge is a special events company that provides signature fundraising events for non-profit organizations. Participants raise donations for a non-profit in exchange for the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to rappel over the edge of a local high-rise building

Here's how it works:

  1. We partner with a non-profit organization in a given community, along with a building who can host the event in support of a great cause.
  2. Our team provides all of the technical expertise to safely rig the building for rappelling. That includes all the equipment, insurance, and logistics, along with 1:1 support for the non-profit's team to make the event a success.
  3. The NPO recruits participants, who each raise $1000 for the opportunity to rappel.
  4. Add in some passionate volunteers to help things run smoothly on the big day, and you've got a fundraising event like no other!
  • 900+ events

  • 360+ buildings

  • 64,000+ participants

  • $100 Million raised since 2008

But don't take our word for it—our clients say it best!

    “Over The Edge offered our organization the opportunity to introduce an entirely new fundraiser to our area. We were able to use this unique platform to talk with new companies, raise awareness in our community and establish a new base from which to raise financial and volunteer support for our work.”

    “The fundraising of $271K and the media attention that we received was pretty much beyond my wildest dreams. Everything we’ve heard from our rappellers was that [the OTE team] were rock solid, reassuring and professional, and the general feeling was that we were all in VERY good hands.”

    2. Earn commissions ($25-100) for connecting us to organizations interested in any of our ancillary services, like Fotaflo, FundRazr, and Discover Adventure.
