Scott Menke Memorial Fund…
benefits all Denali Education Center’s youth programs. The fund benefits local students through camp scholarships and the Scott Menke Summit Scholarship for graduating seniors. In addition, funds are channeled toward direct program costs such as gear replacement, food, supplies and campground fees.
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(s) will be granted. It is our hope to grow the endowment so that it will support the entire program cost.
Wild Air for Youth…
“Live in the sunshine, swim the sea, drink the wild air.” ~ by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Inspired by long-time Denali driver and guide, Bob Tourtelot, the Wild Air Fund supports under-served youth in experiencing Denali. Bob described his career in the Park as having “made a living bearing witness to Denali”. As a community, we hope to give more and more young people the same opportunity to bear witness to Denali’s greatness as a part of their life’s journey.
