Fundraising & Gear Packages

Fundraising Resources

Big City Mountaineers is committed to supporting our Summit for Someone climbers every step of the way, helping to ensure you reach your fundraising goal and have fun while doing it! We'll help you set up a climber donation page and encourage you to take full advantage of the various fundraising tools that we have gathered for your use, including direct support from BCM staff.

Many participants in the Summit for Someone program are first-time climbers as well as first-time fundraisers. Therefore, we are fully committed to your successful journey to both climb the peak of your choice, and to raise the funds that will help under-resourced youth have that opportunity as well.

Check out the resources below, and please be in touch any time!
