The Mountain Fund is dedicated to supporting the humanitarian and environmental work being done by 16 non profit organizations operating in the mountainous regions of the world.
The world's mountains cover about one-fourth of the planet's land surface and are home to 10 percent of its population. They are a sanctuary for an extraordinary web of plant and animal life and a source of water for all of the world's major rivers. Yet mountain people, the guardians of these valuable mountain resources, are among the world's poorest, hungriest and most marginalized populations. Indeed, many of the more than 800 million chronically undernourished people in the world today live in mountain areas.
The Mountain Fund brings health care, human rights, responsible tourism and environmental progress to those who need it most in mountain communities around the world.
The Mountain Fund serves a coalition of member agencies who by working together, increase capacity to raise awareness and funds, and problem solve solutions using their combined resources, to improve conditions for those who need it most around the globe.
The Mountain Fund provides access to fundraising and marketing tools and the human staff needed to use these tools. We help these organizations to grow and prosper.
