Each event we organize is strongly rooted in our 4 guiding principles:

  • Respect for Individuals and Community
  • Maintaining Integrity of All Individuals
  • Connecting Individuals to a Network of Resources and Support
  • Empowerment

Please join us in creating a brighter America for those who have sacrificed so much.


Those currently serving and those who have served our country and its communities have selflessly volunteered for duty and risked their health and lives for the benefit of all Americans.  The Kniestedt Foundation seeks to show our gratitude for these individuals by providing the opportunity to participate in unbelievable outdoor experiences.

Although you can make an online donation in any amount, for donations over $2,500 we encourage you to mail us the check for donation. Please download the mail-in Donation Form.
