Your Donations Pay for the Information you Need to Stay on Top

Most of the money required to run the Utah Avalanche Center comes from donations and grants.  If you use the information the Utah Avalanche Center provides, please consider helping pay for it.  There are lots of ways to do this, some of which don't cost you anything - read on.

First, you can make a donation in several ways.  You can mail a check to Utah Avalanche Center, PO Box 521353, Salt Lake City, UT 84152 or you can donate with a credit card or PayPal.

Please consider signing up for regular monthly donations.  It's easy, painless, and automatic.  How much would you pay per month to get daily advisories to help you make good decisions to maximize your fun and safety?  You can unsubscribe at any time.  Go here to sign up or unsubscribe.

The Utah Avalanche Center is a non-profit 510(c)(3) organization and donations are tax deductible. 

Give When 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,, PatagoniaNRS, or Amazon by clicking on these links, 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!

Donate Stock and Get Tax Benefits

When you donate shares of stock that have appreciated, you a) don't have to pay tax on any gains and b) get to deduct the entire current value of the gifted stock.  And the UAC gets a donation equal to the value of your stock.  Pretty sweet deal for everyone.

Planned Giving

Have you thought of including the Utah Avalanche Center in your estate planning?  By designating a non-profit as the beneficiary of your life insurance, you maintain control of your policy and the ability to change it and can leave behind a lasting legacy.  You can do the same with your will.  Talk to your estate planning professional for more ideas and to get details on how you can leave a legacy of avalanche safety and awareness.

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

Please contact us for details on how you can participate in this program

The Bottom Line:  Your donations keep avalanche forecasts and reports in Utah going. Please – if you use and value this service, please join the team and help us out.  It’s easy and tax - deductible.
