Tax-deductible contributions to the Andy Tyson Memorial Fund will serve mountain communities in the developing world through projects that promote the appreciation of their environment and opportunities for the development of outdoor skills. The goal of this fund is to provide these international outdoor leaders with resources for expeditions; training and access to relevant experts for the betterment of their communities.

These activities are key to increasing opportunities for meaningful employment  and involvement in their region’s development.

Funded projects will be driven by the expressed needs of these local communities.  Please click here to learn more about the Fund’s Advisory Board
