The South American Beacon Project is entirely supported by donations:
Donations of used beacons and avalanche gear are crucial and goes directly to students (workers whose employers do not provide or volunteer organizations who do not have these tools). We do not purchase any beacons, all 250+ beacons we have passed out to date we have received via donation.
When donating beacons, please enclose a description of any “quirks” or potential issues, this will help us in our testing process. At this time we are no longer accepting analog beacons.
We also receive monetary or other in-kind donations. Our instructors are avalanche professionals who volunteer their time. Your monetary donation pays their transportation to the classes they teach for free

Jamie just updating the page, saw this old comment and wanted to remind you that you’re totally the man, thanks for all the help over these years!
Hi! I’m an avalanche educator in Argentina and am interested in your program. Although we DO charge for our avy education, we totally understand the premise of the SA Beacon Project and would like to give a hand. We currently run courses in Argentina and Chile and although our schedule is full throughout the rest of the 2011 season, we can definitely discuss possibilities for 2012 anytime.
All the best
Tried to get in touch with you this past year. Not sure whats going on with SIAA these days, but would love to chat with you over the phone and see how the projects can work together. Let me know if there’s a good time to chat. firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks,
