GiveBIG today

And be a champion for the outdoors!

Do you ever marvel at how beautiful our state is? From lush forests, to magnificent glaciated peaks to the shores of Puget Sound, we live in an awe-inspiring place.

You are part of a community that is fundamentally tied to the history and culture of Washington State. Members of The Mountaineers helped create national parks and wilderness areas we enjoy today. And we've worked to protect these places for over 100 years.

Today, until midnight tonight you have the opportunity to conserve our forests, peaks and shores for future generations and support the work The Mountaineers is doing to create a new generation of conservationists.

GiveBIG is a great day to give to The Mountaineers, thanks to The Seattle Foundation's partial match of every gift made through their website until midnight tonight. In addition to The Seattle Foundation stretch pool, we've been given a matching challenge grant for GiveBIG by the Eleanor Morton Trask Advised Fund. They will match, dollar for dollar, every dollar we raise up to $2,500.

With your generous support, The Mountaineers will continue to develop and grow youth, conservation and volunteer programs to:

  • Teach skills for a lifetime of outdoor pursuits
  • Keep a volunteer ethic alive in our community
  • Get all people outside to create a connection to inspire caring for our natural landscapes 

Help us meet the challenge to protect the outdoor experience for future generations!

Win a Golden Ticket

If you donate today through GiveBIG, you could be randomly selected for a Golden Ticket that wins you a $100 Starbucks gift card and gives The Mountaineers an extra $1,000 from @The Seattle Foundation and other sponsors!
