The Go Ape Foundation

Our purpose is to help people to overcome financial challenges to access adventure 

Why we created The Foundation

In 2024, we launched the Go Ape Foundation to further our ambition to help everyone live life more adventurously and make adventures more accessible to people from all backgrounds and financial circumstances

We believe in the power of adventure at Go Ape. Pushing ourselves out of our comfort zones is essential for building resilience, confidence and skills that can be taken into everyday life. Adventures can also inspire a life-long love of the outdoors. However, not everyone is able to access adventurous experiences due to financial constraints. 

Working with our co-owners and charity partners we will forge partnerships with charitable organisations across the UK and provide access to memorable and transformative experiences to people from all backgrounds. 

Our Goal

In 2024, we have committed to donating £30,000 to the Go Ape Foundation. Go Ape will give £15,000 to each of our chosen charity partners, Go Beyond and Free to Be Kids, to support their charitable work and provide adventures to underprivileged and at risk young people. Our dedicated co-owners will also play their part by fundraising and participating in exciting challenges and events throughout the year.    

Our Charity Partners

Free to be Kids


Free to be Kids uses joy, adventure and the outdoors to transform the mental health of some of London's most disadvantaged children. Through residential breaks and longterm follow-on support, they use adventure to help vulnerable children see themselves as brave, proud, talented and successful - and help them experience achieving beyond their own expectations.

We both believe in the inherent power of outdoor adventures and Go Ape will help to facilitate even more experiences which open up a sense of adventure, freedom and possibility for children who are struggling, whatever life's circumstances.

Go Beyond


Go Beyond gives children and young people facing serious challenges the chance for a residential break that lasts a lifetime.

They give young people who have been bereaved, abused or bullied, who are living in poverty or caring for loved ones the chance to escape their worries and pressures. Every break is packed with activities intended to encourage self-belief and inspire adventurousness.

Together Go Ape and Go Beyond will work to facilitate even more adventurous breaks and help each child to go home knowing they can achieve more than they ever thought possible. 

Application Process

The Go Ape Foundation will select charitable organisations to work with and support. 

Unfortunately, we are not able to consider applications from other organisations at this stage.
