In the spirit of the event, and in gratitude for all they have done for our community, we will be making a donation to Denali Preschool and Learning Center, our local non-profit early childhood care and education provider. We are proud to be members of the same wonderful community and hope to see DPLC grow and thrive in the years to come!

Specify a Fund
The 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.
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 encourages 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 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. Fill in the fund name in the “Contribution Designation” box at the top of the donation page.
In Memory of James Prairie
Long-time community member, friend, and Alaska tourism expert, James Prairie, passed away in September. Known to us as JP, he supported DEC for giving people a way to step out their urban lifestyle and experience wilderness. JP’s departure leaves a hole in our community, one that is filled, however, with laughter, generosity, professionalism, shenanigans, and love. We are humbled to have been chosen by JP’s family for his remembrance.
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.
Contributions from supporters like you drive the success of our mission.
Thank you for your support!
