The Mountain Access Program
At Pursuit we believe that every youth should get to enjoy a day in the mountains. Working with our partners and the Youth & Volunteer Centre we use the funds raised at our annual Pursuit Film Festival to offer free day trips to the mountains to youth who may not otherwise get to go. Participants get a free lift ticket, transportation and rental equipment for the day.

Looking for help?
While every charitable event has merit, we are unfortunately unable to support all the requests for donations we receive.
We focus on local organizations that relate to our adventures and team members' interests. Priority is given to youth, environmental and community building initiatives.
Our preference is always to work directly with the nonprofit organizations involved as we feel this is the best way to create a long term partnership with the greatest impact. We do however work with service clubs (e.g. Rotary or Optimist clubs) and fundraising organizations (e.g. United Way) on specific projects from time to time.
We support organizations with an open membership that are representative of our corporate values as well as those of our team members. We do not support religious organizations, groups or endeavours.
Support typically consists of one or more of the following: adventure donations (e.g. hiking or ski day trips) for auctions or raffles, volunteer hours and discounted services (e.g. charters, shuttles or trips). Please note that we do not offer cash donations or sponsorship at this time.
How to apply?
If you meet the criteria listed above, please contact us at least 6 weeks prior to your event or sponsorship needs.
Detail requests should be sent by email to email@example.com. While we appreciate information on your attendance, track record and sponsor recognition program we are more interested in your story. Tell us why your organization does what it does.
We strive to reply to all requests but if you do not hear from us then unfortunately you must assume that your application was unsuccessful. We wish you the best with your event.
