Triple Your #GiveBIG Impact with Your First Gift

Early this morning, we kicked off the two-day celebration of #GiveBIG and announced a dollar-for-dollar match to help us reach our $30,000 grassroots fundraising goal. 

Inspired by The Mountaineers commitment to engage new communities and young outdoor enthusiasts, a generous donor called this morning to offer an additional $2,500 matching challenge specifically for first time donors. When you make your very first gift today, you don’t just double your impact through the original matching challenge, you TRIPLE your impact and help us unlock another $2,500 to support the future of outdoor education. Will you turn your $25 gift into $75 and help us unlock this additional support? 

#GiveBIG with your first gift today

When you give to The Mountaineers, you support initiatives and scholarship programs that help ensure adventure opportunities are accessible for all youth, adults, and families in our community. Last week, many of our youngest adventurers went climbing for the very first time, inspiring a love of and connection with our natural environment that will last a lifetime.

For over 115 years, The Mountaineers has helped train outdoor educators so that others may experience the transformative power of the great outdoors. Through those experiences as both teachers and students, our community becomes informed and passionate protectors of our environment,  and our lives are enriched with healthy activity for body and mind. 

Your support as members, volunteers, and readers has directly influenced our ability to deliver on our mission in new and innovative ways. We are proud to offer online courses, virtual gatherings, and old-fashioned community building through boots-on-the-ground volunteerism. 

With your unrestricted support, you contribute to the success of all of our outdoor programs, fuel Mountaineers Books to thrive as a mission-driven publisher, and provide recognition and leadership development for our 3,000 volunteer educators. Your donations also provide need-based scholarships for programs across all seven branches so that no one is left behind when considering their outdoor dreams, and make our conservation and advocacy efforts possible, providing guidance on environmental citizenship to our 14,000-person membership base and beyond.
