Give while you shop

If you sell on Ebay, you can choose to have your seller fees donated to the FUAC instead of going to Ebay. Go here to select the FUAC as a favorite non-profit.  When you do that & select "Ebay Gives", they send us a check whenever you sell something.

When you buy online from REI,, Patagonia, NRS, or Amazon by clicking on the links below, they donate a portion of your purchase to the FUAC.  REI will ship your purchase for free to a local store. If you have a Smith's Food & Drug Rewards card, sign up for their Community Rewards program and set the Utah Avalanche Center as your favorite charity.  When you shop there they'll donate to the UAC. And you still get the gas points!

Endowment Fund

The FUAC created an Endowment and Rainy Day fund to assure the long-term financial sustainability of the UAC. The fund was established in 2007 to help ensure the long-term sustainability and continued impact of avalanche awareness, education, research, and forecasting in Utah. Our goal is to increase this fund to $2 Million by December 31, 2016 through large donations and judicious investing for conservative growth and income. Earnings from this fund will support:

  • Innovative new educational products
  • Research efforts to better understand the snow and behavioral science contributing to avalanche accidents
  • The integration of emerging technology and media into avalanche safety, forecasting, and awareness Avalanche
  • Forecaster professional development
  • Stable long term operations funding
