Current Major Gift Needs

Pilgrim Point

Acquisition and transformation of Pilgrim Point into an Outdoor Recreation Center serving the students as well as the community through equipment rental, educational courses focusing on outdoor recreation, and resources to help guide adventurers in the Keweenaw.  

Rock Climbing Wall

Replace the outdated and size limited indoor rock climbing wall in the SDC.  The current wall is roughly 30 years old (educated guess) and lacks the space to effectively facilitate classes and general climbing.  Popularity has increased in the past 10 years and as a result, a bouldering wall was added in 2016 to accommodate more club members.
