The Summit SocietyThe Mountaineers Summit Society recognizes forward thinking donors who have made provisions for The Mountaineers in their estate plans.Your planned gift commitment today will ensure the strength of The Mountaineers tomorrow.

For over 115 years The Mountaineers organization, our members, and our publications have had a profound impact on the larger outdoor community. We have aided the growth of outdoor recreation far beyond the Pacific Northwest and many of today’s natural resources are protected thanks to actions and activities of Mountaineers members like you.

Heading into the next century, The Mountaineers leaders are committed to building on this foundation and stewarding The Mountaineers legacy by providing generations of today and tomorrow with meaningful outdoor experiences that will ensure a future for conservation. 

You can help secure the future of The Mountaineers by considering a legacy gift. You can choose from a variety of options that reflect your values and philanthropic goals, including naming The Mountaineers as a beneficiary of your will or arranging a trust.

Legacy contributions can be made in a variety of ways:

A gift in your will or trust -- or any other planned gift -- allows you to make a significant contribution to the legacy of The Mountaineers while still providing for your own financial security during your lifetime. Regardless of the size of your gift or the type you choose, the greatest benefit of a planned gift to The Mountaineers is in knowing that you are supporting programs that teach skills for a lifetime of outdoor pursuits, foster a volunteer ethic in our community, and inspire conservation through outdoor recreation and publishing works.
