fiveforfiveslogo

As we continue leveraging the success of our marketing, branding, and marquee fundraising events, the High Fives Foundation has developed a system of collaborative partnership opportunities for like-minded businesses that believe in our mission.  We’ve chosen five proven strategies from previous collaborations that have seen the best return on investment for partner businesses and the High Fives Foundation.

POC has pledged $3 from every High Fives SPINE VPD 2.0 to the High Fives Foundation. Thank you!

flylow_290x200

Flylow’s sustainability journey could easily be compared to skiing into a backcountry yurt in a heavy snowstorm. The skin track may be covered at times, and the map and landmarks don’t always match up.

By weighing decisions against its core values and using its guiding principles as a compass, Flylow is confident in its ability to achieve ambitious objectives as stated in the long-term sustainability plan. Flylow has pledged $5 of every Stashpant and Stringfellow Jacket to the High Fives Foundation. Thank you!

Rumpl-Logo-01

When two guys who spend a lot of time in the outdoors decide to design bedding, there may be some unlikely results. Despite significant improvements in modern textiles over the years, they were unable to find a blanket that rivaled our puffy jackets and sleeping bags in terms of performance, warmth, and durability. Even more frustrating was the blanket buying experience – home supply mega-stores with shelves full of boring, repetitive patterns encased in clear, plastic zipper bags. They felt that something we use every day deserved more consideration. They decided to apply the same premium materials developed for outdoor gear to a generally traditional product: an everyday blanket. Thank you!

tandemskydivingschool.com

SkyDance SkyDiving opened its doors in February 1987 with the desire to bring a great Skydiving facility back to the Sacramento and Northern California area. On a wing and a prayer (actually an old C-182 jump plane and a meager credit line), two skydivers combined their resources. They spent close to two years trying to convince the gentle folks of Yolo County that not all skydivers were weird lunatics out to shock the real world. SkyDance SkyDiving gives back in 4 ways! 1. $5 from all full priced Tandems to 13,000 ft. or 18,000 feet. 2. $15 from tandems to 22,000 feet. 3. $500 from all tandems to 30,000 feet booked by High Fives. 4. $1 donated to High Fives for EVERY jump during our Grand Reopening Boogie (skydive term for HUGE party) on April 29th and 30th. Thank you!
