UTAH AVALANCHE CENTER DONATION MATCHING

Again this winter, the Wasatch Mountain Club Board has agreed to match, from Club funds, donations by Club members to the Friends of the UAC, to a maximum of $3,000. Last winter, we raised more than $6,000 as a matching fund to help keep the UAC going and providing all of us with the snow safety information we need!

To make your donation eligible for this matching, please write your check payable to: Friends of the UAC , and mail it to: WMC Treasurer, 1390 South 1100 East, #103, Salt Lake City UT 84105

The Club Treasurer will total up the donations received this way and write a Club check to match the funds collected.

The Friends of the UAC is a 501(c)3 under IRS rules, so your donation might be eligible for a tax deduction. Thanks for your support! Walt Haas, Winter Sports Director.
