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
