Climber Donation (Tax-Deductibility) Information

Donating To Your Own Climb

Mountain Climbing Second StageClimbers are welcome (and encouraged) to make contributions to their own climbs, but should be aware that the amount is not considered tax-deductible until it exceeds the Fair Market Value (FMV) of what you receive as a climb participant.  Please also note that matching gift programs will likely not match any amount given by a participant towards their own climb until it exceeds the FMV. Climber registration fees are also not  considered tax-deductible.

Donations from non-participants or donations by a participant to another climber's fundraising are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.

Fair Market Values for each of the mountain climbs (includes guide services, meals, lodging, etc.) are listed below:

Mt. Adams - $675
Mt. Hood - $725
Mt. Rainier - $1,600
