We have made it possible to support avalanche safety in a variety of ways. We have Tax-exempt (501c3) status and most contributions are tax deductible in the US and, as far we know, in Canada.
We have absolutely no affiliation with any government agency and no paid staff - your contribution to us goes 100% into covering the overhead costs of the project. We also have no corporate sponsors to answer to or appease and no advertising requiring anti-popup whack-a-mole tactics for site guests.
It's possible to make this a monthly donation by checking a box on the next page. You can do this with your paypal balance or an external funding source as far as we know. If you have a paypal account you can terminate or change this recurring feature. You do not need to have an account, especially for a one-time contribution.
|The minimum contribution for a Membership or its renewal with all of its benefits is $25.|
This option may require you to have a paypal account and log in, and it may or may not offer the option of using your paypal balance. It may only give the option of using a card or checking account. This may depend on your location, we are not sure. Recurring contributions can also be set up above by checking a box, as noted in the comment there.
|I would like to donate:|
All recurring donations qualify for membership as long as they are in effect. If your preferred option is not available as a selection above contact us and we'll arrange to set it up for you.
Recurring donations are especially helpful since we have expenses year-round to cover.
|By snail mail:
The primary reason should be to support avalanche safety and education. People who recreate in the backcountry in winter need to take responsibility for themselves, collectively and individually. The time required to operate the project is 100% donated but the bills are paid with contributions, large and small both. If this isn't enough of a reason there are some membership benefits as well as tax benefits.
We are incorporated as a nonprofit in the state of Oregon, USA as a nonprofit and have Tax-exempt (501c3) status from the US Government.
Thank You very much!
