Alzar School Campus Buildout

Thanks to many of you, we have raised $2.3 million of the Campus Buildout goal! Help us get the rest of the way.

Just a small donation will go a long way to helping me meet our goal for the Alzar School. When Kristin and Sean started this school in 2004, we knew it was only a matter of time before this vision became a reality, and we would need to expand that vision.  Our campus is full and we are ready to finish the buildout to allow us to support 42 students each semester. The time is now, donate today! 

Donors from all over helped support this campaign through a variety of avenues.

Salmon River Trip

Alzar School donors also had the opportunity to participate in a special 6-day river trip down the Main Salmon River in July 2016. Thanks to Momentum River Expeditions (our guides for this trip), a significant portion of the trip cost benefits the school. This popular river trip was a huge success in both 2015 and 2016. Stay tuned for news about the July 2017 trip!
