Our mission: Why We Climb
- Our mission is to raise awareness for disabled U.S veterans by climbing mountains.
- Summit For A Soldier (SFAS) is a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit and tax exempt Organization.
- No money donated by private individuals (unless otherwise stated by the individual) is used to pay for the climbs. The climbs are paid for by the SFAS athletes, their families, corporate sponsors, small businesses, and private individuals that wish to sponsor SFAS climbs. As stated above, all proceeds raised by Summit For A Soldier will go to 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations to help disabled veterans.
- SUMMIT FOR A SOLDIER uses publicized climbs to raise awareness and funding for disabled veterans. The climbs are an act of solidarity and represent the struggles which disabled veterans must go through to learn to cope with their mental and physical disabilities. The climbs also raise money for partnering non-profit organizations through a pledge program, which money is raised by each foot climbed.
- The money raised is donated to 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations as voted for by the Board of Directors.
- In 2014 a Summit of Mt. Whitney raised 2.5K for the 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Military Missions in Action (MMIA) which is dedicated to assisting veterans with disabilities, members of the Armed Forces and their families.
