Raise 'Em Outdoors

Raise ‘Em Outdoors is dedicated to teaching children and young adults the value of hunting, fishing and providing sustainable food through its affordable camps. As the nonprofit organization enters its third year, it’s expanding its team to include new board members and volunteers, which in turn is expected to give the structure the nonprofit needs to take on more camp attendees, and more donors.

Among those new team members is Brad Luttrell, the CEO and Co-Founder of the rapidly growing outdoors app, GoWild. Luttrell joins Raise ‘Em Outdoors’ board as the Vice President, Board of Directors.

“With the negativity in the news around hunting, it can feel like you’re one of the last few to care about the future of this lifestyle,” said Raise ‘Em Outdoors Founder & Chairman, Erin Crooks. “But through this organization, I’ve found others like me who really care about the next generation. Brad and the GoWild team were great partners for 2018, and we’re proud to expand on his role for 2019 and beyond.”

GoWild was Raise ‘Em Outdoors’ title sponsor for 2018 and is back for 2019. In addition to the sponsorship, GoWild added functionality to its platform to accommodate the nonprofit’s mission. GoWild has an activity log and forum for Mentorship, pushed initiatives to garner donations to Raise ‘Em Outdoors and as of January 2019, GoWild is matching any company’s donation of $5,000 with a free credit in advertising on its platform.

“We need more people like Erin,” said Luttrell. “GoWild is going to do everything we can to support what she’s doing with Raise ‘Em Outdoors. Last year that meant primarily donations, but for this year we’re proud to take this to the next level with support for strategic marketing and fundraising. This is a camp the entire hunt fish industry needs to support and we’re going to do all we can to ensure we get the word out about it.”

In addition to Luttrell, Raise ‘Em Outdoors has added Molly Ford as an Officer and Board of Directors, Secretary. Ford has a background in grant writing in Oregon. Stefano Scalia also joins the Board of Directors. Scalia is the Executive Director of Marketing for Rock Tape and will be adding his focus on fundraising and education.

 I’m new to fishing and have no idea what gear to even start with. What I thought would be an easy search in Google for “beginner fishing setup” turned into complicated terms that a newbie like me didn’t understand. After getting recommendations from members in GoWild, I've created a list of setups for adults, youth and even saltwater basic fishing setups.
