I had to bump this since the campaign has slowed a bit. Tell your friends, co-workers, climbing partners... Just a few bucks from a bunch of us will make a big difference to the CFI.

Remember, once we get to $20k, I can make the 2nd incentive donation of $1k. :-D

Thanks!

UPDATE:

We're at $18,350. Once we get to $20k, I can make the next $1k incentive contribution and we should be able to cruise to the $25k goal in early August. I hope.

Tell your friends :)

I just gave $20! I try to donate $20 for every 14er I do. Since Bill doesn't need my money anymore, I give it to CFI!

Thanks!

14ers.com does depend on the donations, store purchases and the affiliate links to continue but it takes a lot less $ to run this site than it does to build/repair 14er trails each year. CFI has also lost USFS and other government funding recently so the individual donor is now vital. If you have to make a choice, I'd rather see you donate to CFI!

Looks like I'll have to pony up another $1k soon!

We're at $19,538 and inching closer to the $25k goal

You are a good man Mr. Middlebrook.
According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you.
1 Peter 1:3-4
