Attempting a summit comes with a series of celebratory moments that inspire reflection, personal transformation, and overwhelming gratitude. And reaching the top takes commitment and encouragement along the way. 

Our goal this spring - the summit we set our sights on - was to raise $55,000 to support outdoor education and conservation throughout Mountaineers programs and books. Today we’re celebrating how far we’ve come together. With the help of committed Mountaineers members, donors, and volunteers who made donations of all sizes, our community raised more than $54,000 during our spring fundraising drive!

Our Spring Fundraising Campaign by the Numbers 

  • $25,216 raised through GiveBIG, including a $10,000 match received after 100 people made a donation of $25 or more.
  • 342 people made donations of all sizes during the month of May. Of those people, 122 offered their first-ever gift to support The Mountaineers.
  • 158 members and readers chipped in to our annual fund by including an at-the-cart donation when paying for their annual dues or new Mountaineers Books titles. They invested in transformative outdoor experiences for others while planning their own adventure!

Our goal is within reach; it’s just a few steps away! We are $1,171 shy of reaching $55,000. It’s never too late to empower others to confidently explore and advocate for our natural world

Help us reach our goal

The Mountaineers community takes our mission to the next level by giving back. When you donate to The Mountaineers, you elevate the values of our outdoor community. You provide need-based scholarships for youth and adults and access to gear for groups and families. You protect forests, parks, and waterways through conservation and advocacy. You invest in volunteer leadership training and create opportunities for youth to get outside. And you enable Mountaineers Books to champion emerging authors and turn readers into advocates for our favorite places. Because of your generosity, our outdoor community is stronger. 

If you are inspired to make a gift, I hope you’ll join me as a donor this spring by visiting our spring fundraising donation page. 

Thank you for all you do to elevate our outdoor community and help others experience the joy of spending time outside.

The Mountaineers ®, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, relies on book sales, dues, donations, and volunteerism to sustain our mission and deepen our impact. Your support, at every level, amplifies our efforts to connect more people to the natural world and protect the outdoor experience. Thank you!
