Gear or In-Kind Donations

We prefer to acquire equipment in multiples at the same time as it is easier for us to set up, store and maintain. We are unable to offer tax credit for donated equipment.

REI has been very generous to San Diego ICO. Please consider becoming an REI member. You may receive 8-10% back on your purchases as an annual “dividend”. If you wish, your dividends can be converted to gift cards for San Diego ICO to use on future equipment purchases.
