How To Support

This season we are donating 5% of our fundraised money to the Native Scholarship Fund which is a collaboration between Coalition SnowOn The Land Media designed to support indigenous skiers and riders. You can also directly support or learn more about this scholarship here

Sticker Donations: If you want to give us help for our next expedition- donate to our gofundme and receive this year's beautiful sticker designed by the lovely Maddie Hall.

T-Shirt: You can also get yourself a t-shirt here!

A little bit about the sticker design - When trying to think of ideas for this year's design, I really wanted to create something that encapsulated what 2020 was like. The chaos of an icefall captures the essence of navigating this last year. You can't really trust the ground underneath you, and your environment is constantly changing. To get through this, all you can do is use the tools you have with you, and to create a lifeline with the people you are connected to (bonus: roping up = good social distancing). Join us as we try to put 2020 behind us, and pursue the sparks that this hell of a year failed to put out. 

 

Email us at akmountainwomen@gmail.com if we do not know you or your mailing address and we can send you a sticker.

 

Huge thank you to everyone who has supported us. From grants to letting us sleep on your floor, loaning us gear, watching our dogs, skipping a beer to buy one of our stickers- it takes a village to make our climbing projects possible. We could not have done it without all of you. 

 

Past Grant Awards:  American Alpine Club's Live You Dream Grant, American Alpine Club's Mountaineering Fellowship Grant, British Mountaineering Council's Julie Tullis Memorial Award, and NOLS Instructor Development Fund.

We are incredibly honored to partner with Sealaska through their philanthropy program. Several of us were born and raised within Southeast Alaska on the ancestral and present day homelands of the Tlingit people. Here we have be acquainted with the mountains, have gotten to know the land, and have been nourished by a community that Sealaska and its shareholders have been the backbone of. Our graditude extends beyond words.

Other Thank Yous: Thanks Mark and Margy for letting us take over your house for a few days. It was an amazing base camp! Huge thank you to our parents. Sorry for terrifying you and raising your blood pressure on a regular basis. Also thank you to the rest of our families, friends, significant others and dogs (Gilkey and Bentley).  We try extra hard to come back safe and sound because of all of you. Thanks to our awesome pilots Wally and Zak for getting us there safety. Huge thank you to Roxanne for letting us take over your upstairs when we were weathered-in and for putting up with our smells after the expedition. The showers after the trip before the ferry ride were a game changer.

We love all of you so much. We are not worthy.

 

 Were also open to other creative ways to work together. Email us at akmountainwomen@gmail.com if you can think of a way we can help each other out. Thanks!
