New avalanche nonprofit will provide financial aid for Forest Service

NH (Nov. 15, 2022) – Friends of Tuckerman Ravine and White Mountain Avalanche Education Foundation, both longtime nonprofits of Mt. Washington Valley, have merged. The merger will support and promote the Mount Washington Avalanche Center, a Forest Service operation.

Both groups have previously been critical to the success of the Forest Service center, bestowing financial support. This combined entity will enhance the ability to raise money.

“We are very excited about these organizations finally coming together after so many years. Both have the same goals, and now together, we can streamline our efforts to fund the Avalanche Center,” said Jake Risch, president of the new Avalanche Nonprofit – the Mount Washington Avalanche Center Foundation.
