The Scott Menke Memorial Fund benefits all Denali Education Center’s youth programs. Funds are channeled toward direct program costs such as gear replacement, food, supplies and campground fees. In addition, the fund benefits local students through camp scholarships and the Scott Menke Summit Scholarship for graduating seniors. The fund was created to honor Scott’s memory and embodies the incomparable spirit Scott shared with us.
The Maureen Sims Memorial Endowment ensures the sustainability of our W.I.L.D. about Denali program. Currently, the endowment provides scholarships to partner agencies that either encourage participants to apply, or decide to which individual(s) the scholarship will be granted. It is our hope to grow the endowment so that it will support the entire program cost.
To specify which fund to apply your donation, please indicate the fund name (either Scott Menke Memorial Fund or Maureen Sims Memorial Endowment) on your check or use the donation button above. After filling in the donation information, hit “Review Contribution.” Write the fund name in the box titled “Contribution designation.”
One way to give to Denali Education Center is through in-kind support like equipment, supplies, and items for fundraisers such as the Healy Tundra Challenge Golf Tournament and the Annual Auction. We are always in need of quality outdoor gear for the youth that participate in our education programs.
