Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows Foundation (the Foundation)
Donations to SAF are tax deductible to the extent allowed by the law.
A non profit organization dedicated to supporting young amateur athletes interested in developing skills in snow sports through participation in a Squaw Valley or Alpine Meadows competitive or non-competitive ski or snowboard team. We provide financial assistance to Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows team athletes who either have a financial need or have achieved a higher level of competition, which requires extensive travel and specialized training programs. We also provide financial support for continuing education programs for our coaches, with the goal of increasing the quality of coaching, instruction and development of our athletes.
In the summer of 2012, a group of team parents from both Squaw Valley & Alpine Meadows joined forces to form the Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows Foundation (SAF).
Together with additional volunteers, the group is bound by a common passion for helping young snow sports athletes achieve their dreams and goals, whether competitive or non-competitive. SAF, formerly Alpine Meadows Ski Foundation (AMSF), is focused on supporting snow sports athletes and coaches in their pursuit of excellence on skis (alpine or telemark) or snowboard.
With your support we have granted scholarship awards worth over $62,000 to 7 coaches.
The Coach Continuing Education Program offers financial assistance to coaches wishing to participate in continuing education courses, clinics or programs. The program sets forth pre-established criteria for qualification, including types of courses, clinics and programs that are supported. Additionally, should the Foundation and Squaw Valley management deem it necessary and appropriate, SAF may supplement, through financial assistance, the clinics and programs offered to coaches by the resorts.
SAF families, We are still looking for more volunteers! The 6-11:45 shift is actually 6-9PM! Please help support our foundation as well as the elite athletes of the Iron Man! Bring your family and friends!
