The Appalachian Mountain Club is dedicated to protecting, enjoying, and understanding the outdoors.  By making a charitable donation to AMC, you are ensuring that trails are built and maintained, public land, clean air, and clean water is protected, and the enjoyment and value of the outdoors is promoted for people of all ages and walks of life. Without support from people like you, this important work would not be possible.

A Lasting Legacy

Founded in 1876, the Appalachian Mountain Club (AMC) is America's oldest conservation and recreation organization.

Support The Outdoors You Love

Wherever your trail leads, it is your stories that define what it means to be outdoors. The stories of AMC members span the gamut from meditative walks in the woods to peak-bagging and taking in the splendor of the summit. From birdwatching to paddling, skiing to camping, the outdoors has something for each of us.
