Today and tomorrow mark a celebration of community and generosity across the Pacific Northwest. Will you join us and GiveBIG to get more people outside?

This grassroots giving event helps cultivate and celebrate the kind of Washington that we believe is possible. If equitable access to outdoor education and the conservation of our natural world are priorities for you, make sure to include The Mountaineers in your GiveBIG donations.

Contributions of all sizes add up to a big impact, and we need your help to unlock a special challenge. When 100 people make a GiveBIG donation, we’ll unlock an additional $10,000 matching gift supporting the mission and vision of The Mountaineers.

We envision a world where our adventures extend beyond the reach of our own personal enjoyment and where all people can confidently enjoy and are inspired to protect the natural world.


Everyone who donates $15 or more during the month of May will receive a limited edition Adventure with Purpose sticker.

The Mountaineers flourish thanks to a culture of giving. Our volunteers and donors give back and pay it forward, empowering others to confidently explore in their own backyards and beyond. Each act of giving strengthens our bonds and deepens our roots. We believe we are all connected, to this earth and to each other.

Thank you to the 101 members like you who gave generously to support our shared vision with a GiveBIG donation!

Over the course of GiveBIG, thousands of people across our region donated to elevate purpose-driven organizations that positively impact our communities. A $10,000 matching challenge was met when we reached 100 donors, raising a total of $21,112 to support outdoor education and conservation in the Pacific Northwest and beyond. 

GiveBIG kicked off our spring fundraising season, and we have a goal for 300 members to join us with donations in the month of May. We are already one third of the way there! The support of our community fuels our shared vision to Adventure with Purpose. Funds raised through our spring appeal support programs and books that make the natural world more accessible and conserve the outdoor experience for generations to come.
