One of the things that makes this community so incredible are the caring people in it who volunteer their time and donate their hard-earned money helping support our mountain area nonprofits. Without you, many would go hungry, lack shelter, struggle more, and do without and we are so grateful for those who take care of each other.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving everyone, and please remember to schedule your donations for Colorado Gives Day!

Proudly serving mountain Jeffco, Clear Creek & Park County!

It's here!!! We’ve been working on a new short film about our team with Brian Chambliss from Plugged In Productions and we’d like to give a HUGE thanks to him and his team for producing this project! We are biased, but think he did an amazing job showing our tremendous volunteers helping others in the mountains FREE OF CHARGE.

Colorado Gives Day is coming up on December 8, 2020 and we’d love if you’d consider donating to support our cause! We help people who are hurt or injured while exploring Colorado’s backcountry free of charge so if you spend any amount of time in our mountains, it could be your life we are saving next. You can donate anytime between now and December 8, 2020 by clicking the link below!

About Alpine Rescue Team

Alpine Rescue Team of Evergreen, Colorado is a mountain search and rescue unit dedicated to saving lives through search, rescue, and mountain safety education. The Team is composed totally of volunteers and is available upon request to help in mountain search and rescue problems anywhere, under the authority of local jurisdiction agencies. The Team is also available to provide information and lectures on mountain safety to interested individuals and groups.

The Team usually participates in 120 to 140 field missions per year; these are generally divided about equally between rescues and searches. The Team averages 7,000 volunteer-hours per year in field missions, and at least twice that figure in volunteer-hours spent in training.

The work is totally volunteer — the members donate their time, money, and transportation and have to purchase their own personal equipment that may exceed $1000 per year. Time spent away from work is often money out of their own pockets.

Our reward? That rare and fulfilling experience of being able to provide direct and much-needed help to someone in trouble in the mountains. The members of the Alpine Rescue Team love the mountains; we want others to enjoy them the way we do — safely.

The mission of Alpine Rescue Team is to ensure all-weather, 24/7, search and rescue response, preparedness, community education, coordination and leadership to Colorado's residents and visitors. Alpine Rescue Team responds to emergencies such as avalanches, lost hikers, high-altitude/vertical rescues and/or other situations in Colorado's mountainous terrain. Alpine Rescue is an independent, 501 (c) 3 volunteer organization, not a government agency. Available 24/7, Alpine Rescue Team's assistance is always given free of charge!

The team survives on donations from the public, along with some state and local grants.

We couldn't do what we do without the support of our generous community. Although our 70th year did not turn out the way we expected, we are very proud that we are weathering the storm with the support of so many who appreciate the arts.

I slept and dreamt that life was joy. I awoke and saw that life was service. I acted and behold, service was joy. ~Rabindranath Tagore

This year has seen enormous challenges due to the pandemic, subsequent job losses, business closures and economic hardship. Many of our neighbors are more in need than ever and relying on the services of our local charities, while at the same time those nonprofits have been unable to hold their usual annual fundraising events. Twenty-nine mountain area nonprofits have joined forces to ask you to Give Where You Live for Colorado Gives Day on Tuesday, December 8, 2020 and help us continue providing for our community members by donating at ColoradoGives.org. 

Why give to these nonprofits? Our nonprofits provide the services that would normally be provided by city or town governments and tax dollars. These groups rely on the sustained generosity of donors and volunteers like YOU for support. 

We are fortunate to live in a place where so many committed individuals have come together to establish organizations that enrich our area and lives. Everywhere you turn, you will see the hand of our nonprofits at work!

When our neighbors are experiencing job loss or financial crises, they turn to Evergreen Christian Outreach and the Mountain Resource Center for food, financial assistance, employment advice, clothing and much more. Our outdoor spaces have become more valued than ever for helping us improve our physical and mental health, and Friends of Staunton State Park, Conifer Historical Society & Museum, the Evergreen Mountain Area Historical Society, Evergreen Audubon Nature Center, and Mountain Area Land Trust preserve and protect our lands and historical treasures, and offer unique educational opportunities. When those enjoying the outdoors get lost or injured, Alpine Rescue Team and Park County Search and Rescue jump into action to save lives.

Elk Run Assisted Living and Mount Evans Home Health Care and Hospice provide services to our seniors and others in need of health care assistance. Additional support for families is available through Blue Spruce Habitat for Humanity, Life’s Options Pregnancy Center, and Peaceworks, Inc./Mountain Peace Shelter. Evergreen Animal Protective League cares for our future pets who bring such joy and well-being to our lives.

Mountain-area residents of all ages have the opportunity to experience high-quality performances, visual art exhibits, classes and festivals right here in our community, presented by the Ovation West Performing Arts, Evergreen Chamber Orchestra, Evergreen Children’s Chorale, Evergreen Players, StageDoor Theatre, The Venue Theatre, Sculpture Evergreen, and Center for the Arts Evergreen.

The Jefferson County Library Foundation provides numerous resources inside and outside the Conifer and Evergreen libraries. Our kids receive support and care through Resilience1220, the Boys & Girls Club of the High Rockies provides after-school education, while Bootstraps Scholarships and Loans helps students realize the dream of higher education through awards and financial aid. Evergreen Sustainability Alliance (formerly EAS+Y) educates and provides services for waste reduction, local food sources, energy conservation and other sustainability practices. Evergreen Rotary Foundation helps many area nonprofits through their fundraising and giving.



To be certified as a Colorado Gives-approved charity, organizations must meet high standards for governance and fiscal responsibility. Visit ColoradoGives.org to find the profile of organizations you wish to support and make your safe and secure donation in a few easy steps. You don’t have to wait until December 8 – you can schedule your one-time or recurring contributions now to be processed on Colorado Gives Day.  

Please visit ColoradoGives.org to donate to the nonprofit organizations that educate, enrich, entertain, serve and protect our community.

Every donation, no matter the amount, makes an impact. Give Where You Live in the Mountains!

Proudly serving mountain Jeffco, Clear Creek & Park County!

Lots of good groups about to give to.
I would like to mention another. "Denver Actor's Fund", started by a classmate of mine helps those in theater with unusual medical and dental bills. With most all live theater shut down in Colorado, these people are hurting more than most.

Thanks,
