The purpose of Hope Ascents is to help mountain climbers raise money for charity. When a climber chooses to raise money for charity with Hope Ascents, we will provide them with education, support, and technology. We will educate our climbers by providing material on how to train for climbs, how to pick the right mountain, and how to choose a charity. We will support our climbers in their fundraising by helping them plan fundraisers, giving them templates for fundraising communications, and helping them network with other members that are fundraising through blogs and forums on the Hope Ascents website (http://www.hopeascents.org). Lastly, we will help each climber create a personalized web page on our website to help raise awareness and money for their cause.
The goal for Hope Ascents is that 100 percent of the money donated to each climber goes directly to that climber’s supported charity.
