Friends of the Sawtooth Avalanche Center (SAC) is a non-profit organization that provides over 50% of our local avalanche center’s annual funding. Our mission is to support the SAC and promote life-saving avalanche safety information, education and outreach throughout central Idaho. Join us in driving our mission forward, realizing our vision, and building the best avalanche center in the West. The Friends of SAC operate under 501 (c)(3) guidelines.
The Friends provide over half of the Sawtooth Avalanche Center’s annual operating budget, and we couldn’t do it without YOUR support. Your donations help support our amazing forecast team who produce the fact-filled Daily Avalanche Forecasts we rely upon all winter for safe travel in the backcountry. You help pay for the ever-evolving and information-packed SAC website. And, your contributions help provide essential educational outreach to our community. Every donation, no matter the amount, is so important to helping us meet our mission, and every donation, no matter the amount, could save a life!
As warmer temperatures bring a close to this bizarre winter season, and we continue to adjust our lives to the impact of the global pandemic, our team would like to say “THANK YOU” for the incredible support we’ve received from our local community.
We have been reflecting on the continued growth and success of the Sawtooth Avalanche Center, including amazing community gatherings at our educational and fundraising events, adding a fourth forecasting position to almost double the forecast coverage area, and launching a new website platform. These achievements would not be possible without YOU! The Sawtooth Avalanche Center truly is a community effort, and we are grateful for your support!
We wish you a happy, healthy summer season, and look forward to reconnecting with you when the snow returns to the mountain peaks!
