Help us improve Alpenglow Collective's web and mpbile site!

The goal of Alpenglow Collective is to provide an inclusive online community for women, trans, and non-binary individuals to meet up and climb.

Alpenglow Collective is a connecting force for all women* in the climbing community. It is an inclusive platform where they can connect, find climbing partners, and create lasting mentorships. We are striving to foster in-person relationships within the women's climbing community, which is especially important as more climbers wish to take their experiences outdoors.

This website is unique from existing women’s climbing forums in that it is not a blog, a message board, or a general meet-up site. It focuses specifically on pairing women with others who share their interests and goals, and providing a forum to meet and climb. Members of the collective create a profile and browse for others with similar interests, locations, and goals.

Climbing with women is a refreshingly different experience - I feel encouraged, comfortable, and driven in a unique way that pushes me to try my hardest. I hope that Alpenglow Collective can create a climbing community for women who want to improve their skills, plan trips, and just hang out with others who are passionate about the same things that they are.

Fundraiser money will go towards the process of improving the site's functionality by making it more intuitive with Google location services, beter messaging, and more instructive and interactive profile creation. We have realized that nearly 90% of our members use Alpenglow on their phones, so we want to make the site as fluid and intuitive as possible. 

Funding also goes towards Wordpress plugins to improve the site, paying for the server that hosts our site, Facebook and Google ads to get the word out, as well as Google business email. Additional donations will also go towards creative input, so that we can commission help with graphic design, tech support, and media outlets. We will also use funds for events that we host, including marketing materials, rentals, paying for event spaces, food and drinks, etc...

Thank you so much for the support, we are incredibly excited about this next stage of our company and can't wait to see where it goes!

Hey Friends and Supporters!

We are moving into the next phase of our development and we need your help!

Fundraiser money will go directly towards the process of becoming a registered business entity, and towards the development of a mobile app. We have realized that nearly 90% of our members use Alpenglow on their phones, so we want to make the site as fluid and intuitive as possible. We also want to add additional helpful features to the mobile app, such as setting your current location and being able to be paired with a mentor or mentee.

We are so excited to be moving forward with this and to focus our efforts on forming a sustainable business out of what we have created so .

As always, thank you so much for your support, we couldn't have gotten this far without you!

Alpenglow Collective and Terra Incognita Media are teaming up to facilitate a discussion on the nuanced themes of female representation in climbing literature through an intersectional lens. Join us on Feb 27th at Base Camp Brewery from 6pm-8ish to chat, meet new people, and grab a beer (Happy Hour all day Monday!!)

Thanks to everyone for your support so far! We're printing up a bunch of event flyers, are finalizing our logo with our graphic designer, and have a programmer helping us backup the site, fix bugs, and develop a more intuitive onboarding process for new users. We couldn't do all of this without your donations and your lovin. THANK YOU!
