Our programs succeed because of our partnerships with you—our members, personal donors, outdoor industry businesses, and foundations. In order to keep our courses and exams affordable for our guides, we rely on your monetary support. But more than that, your financial assistance means the AMGA can professionalize the guiding profession. It means our guides can have sustainable careers, that the stunning wild areas in which they work will be protected, and the AMGA can continue to educate land managers and outdoor industry leaders. If you are passionate about alpine exploration, rock climbing, skiing, and ski mountaineering, and the landscapes on which you dream of doing these things, please consider becoming a member or making a one-time or recurring donation today.
