The Arizona Women’s Climbing Coalition is pleased to announce that it has received 501(c)(3) status as a public charity. This means donors can deduct contributions they make to the AZWCC, and the AZWCC is now qualified to receive tax deductible bequests, devises, transfers, or gifts. The AZWCC is thrilled to have reached this 2020 goal and hopes that this new status will lead to more opportunities within the outdoor community and help to pursue the coalition’s mission more effectively.
The AZWCC would like to thank its board members who have graciously volunteered hours of their personal time and effort, its chapter leads who tirelessly create space for womxn to thrive, and most of all, the climbing community for its support and enthusiasm since the AZWCC’s launch in August 2018. AZWCC looks forward to continuing to serve the climbing community by empowering womxn, helping womxn create meaningful connections, improving inclusion in our sport, providing education on responsible climbing and environmental practices, and giving back for years to come.
