Support Summit Adventure

Are climbing, service, backpacking, cultural immersion, mountaineering, and trekking life-changing experiences? Not on their own, but these experiences designed and delivered by passionate experiential educators and wilderness professionals can lead to significant transformations. How do we know? For 40 years Summit has been designing and facilitating these types of transformational experiences and our participants have shared with us the significant changes these experiences have caused in their lives. Thank you for considering donating to Summit Adventure and supporting us in continuing to provide and facilitate transformational adventure and learning.

Why Does Summit Adventure Need Your Support?

As an independent, non-denominational 501(c)(3) ministry, Summit Adventure does not receive any financial support from a denomination, church, or other parent organization. Throughout the 40-year history of Summit Adventure, we have existed solely on course revenue and private donations.

We could not accomplish what we do without your support. Summit Adventure currently charges tuition that covers ½ of the cost for running programs. The difference is covered through generous donations. The more donors like you who are involved, the more people are able to afford a relationship-building and life-changing experience with Summit Adventure.

Please donate today to allow more people to experience the transformation of a Summit Adventure course.

From the perspective of the gospel, fundraising is not a response to a crisis. Fundraising is, first and foremost, a form of ministry. It is a way of announcing our vision and inviting other people into our mission. Vision and mission are so central to the life of God’s people that without vision we perish and without mission we lose our way. Vision brings together needs and resources to meet those needs. Vision also shows us new directions and opportunities for our mission. Vision gives us courage to speak when we might want to remain silent.
