Donating to Climb the Mountain grows the speech and debate community.


Your donation is put into action by making our programs less costly and in particular, provides 50, 95% and full fee reductions for lower income families; it helps pay for our efforts to do outreach to schools to add and grow speech and debate programs; it makes it possible to achieve Climb the Mountain’s objective:


  • To have as many students participating who are in elementary schools, middle schools, high schools, and colleges and universities

  • To help coaches provide the best instruction and experience for their students.


Help us Climb the Mountain.

Want to donate?

You can write us a Check.

Donate so that students with financial need can improve their speaking and debating skills in our programs at an affordable price, even no cost. We hope you agree with Climb's strong belief that finances should not stop a student from engaging in speech and debate, learning and engaging in communication skills.

Help these kids. Help us reach them. DONATE by making a check to Climb the Mountain and sending it to:

We are a Federal and Washington state non-profit corporation.

Climb the Mountain Speech and Debate Foundation has tax exempt status under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.  Documentation on request. IRS form 990 available upon request.

Since we started, Climb the Mountain has raised over $130,000 in donations and we've used that money to provide opportunities for over 5,200 students.

We are excited about what we can do for the community in the coming year. In 2022, we worked with over 1,200 elementary, middle school, and high school students in our afterschool programs, ran clinics for students, held a 200 person speech and debate camp, and hosted multiple college tournaments. We've supported efforts to begin a greater Seattle urban debate league, and helped Rainier Scholars engage in debate.

Help us do all of that and more. DONATE. Click the Button please. : )
