Help Us Fundraise!

Apr 6, 2024


Thankfully we’ve seen some great skiing and riding conditions despite the abysmal start to this season. The Friends of the Sawtooth Avalanche Center are grateful to all who donated, attended  events, and took our classes this year!  Contributions from our supporters are crucial for maintaining our programs and supporting our dedicated team of avalanche professionals. 

Whether it snows a lot or hardly at all, our commitment to promoting life-saving avalanche safety information, education, and outreach remains steadfast. Unfortunately, the lack of early-season snowfall and excitement hurt our annual fundraising efforts. 

We need your help now to reach our fundraising goals. 

To help us reach those goals, we have received two generous matching grants. Every contribution made to the Friends of SAC before the end of April will be matched dollar for dollar up to $30,000. Every dollar raised helps us fulfill our mission.  Please join us!

No matter the conditions, our team works year-round to provide winter backcountry avalanche and weather forecasts, free and low-cost avalanche education, and enriching community events.  We are proud to play a pivotal role in promoting the safety of recreationists and residents alike.

As we close out the 2023-24 season, we ask for your assistance in meeting our funding needs: donate today to help us meet our match! Thank you for supporting our work this year. Your gifts ensure the vitality of the high-quality avalanche forecasting and education our community relies on.
