Keepers of the Flame
Who are the Keepers of the Flame for The Mountain?

As the winds of change and circumstance blow, and the rains of challenge pound us, and the shrieks of uncertainty wail from time to time, there is the Flame that warms our souls, that sustains and nurtures us through this storm. Truly, as it has done so for other storms in The Mountain’s 42 year history, be they little, or existential.

Sometimes we may feel as though lashed to the mast of a once-upon-a-time schooner while the storm rages and tosses us about. When will it end? Then, we remember the flame. Wonder if it is still burning, still keeping us on course. And it is. Because of the Keepers...
Giving Tuesday
After Thanksgiving, we have Black Friday and Cyber-Monday for shopping, and then Giving Tuesday, December 1st, for supporting the work of charitable organizations. Please consider making a special gift to The Mountain as we work together, building for the future. 
Supporting The Mountain through Amazon Smile
As you shop online, please designate The Mountain as a beneficiary of your purchases. The Mountain will receive a small portion of all expenditures through this process.
42nd Anniversary of
The Mountain
We are celebrating the 42nd anniversary of The Mountain, and having fun thinking of “42” related ways to contribute to The Mountain. 

You might want to contribute $42, $420, or $4,200. 
We are delighted to have already received one donation of $42,000. 

We would love to have 42 mattresses, 42 sets of silverware, 420 new guests at The Mountain, 420 new Mountain members, or 42 volunteers. Or, come to 4 new Mountain programs, or have a cup of coffee or tea with 4 staff or volunteers and learn more about our Mountain team and what we do. 

What ideas do you have about how we could do 42 of something to celebrate The Mountain? 
Building for the Future

There are so many exciting things happening at The Mountain -- major renovation of the Tree House and Rec Room, cabin upgrades, repairing the dam and preserving our lake, in addition to general infrastructure work to care for Mountain facilities. We are delighted to be welcoming back a few small groups and look forward to seeing all of you back at The Mountain for a variety of inspiring programming.

In support of these projects at The Mountain in preparation for fully re-opening, I am donating about $100,000 as a stock transfer. I invite others to join me in this initiative -- transferring appreciated stock, minimizing tax exposure -- to make these special projects a reality.

The possibilities are created by all of us working together.

Required Minimum Distribution (RMD)

The RMD for retirement accounts could be donated to The Mountain to fund a special project or for the Endowment Fund. Those of us over 70 ½ may donate up to $100,000 without penalty to a non-profit organization. These larger donations make a difference, especially for ongoing infrastructure projects.

We miss our Mountain friends who have not been able to spend time here recently.
