Challenge for Leaders 2018

Are you up for the challenge? We are!

Alzar School's Challenge for Leaders 2018 campaign is setting out to raise $150,000 for our Empowering Leaders Annual Fund. We are asking you to rally your friends, family, and networks to support young leaders.


Here is how you can help:

  • Support existing staff and alumni challenges. Alzar School staff and alumni from around the country will complete their own “Challenge for Leaders” challenges, raising funds to give the Alzar School experience to future teenagers.
    • Kristin, Sean, and Oscar Bierle's "6 Foundations, 6 Year Pledge"
      • The Bierles are tackling a series of challenges, each connected to one of the school's 6 Foundations over the course of six weeks.  These include reading books connected to each foundation, biking to work, paddling six sections of the Payette River, and more.

    • Anita Cussler's "Summits for Scholars"
      • Anita is tackling a personal challenge to summit as many peaks possible on her splitboard over the 2017/2018 winter all while raising scholarship funds for local Valley County students to attend the Alzar School.
  • Consider a planned gift. Many of our supports choose to make regular gifts to Alzar School. If interested, please visit our annual giving site or contact Anita Cussler,, for more information.
  • Participate in our spring online auction. More information to come in Spring 2018.
