Many of you watching the events of the Ute Park Fire unfold at Philmont are asking how you can help. The situation is on-going and dynamic so Philmont won’t know all of what it needs for days or weeks to come. We do know, however, that the need is going to be real and substantial. Philmont has insurance for fire damage, but will need significant help for things that are likely not covered, such as reseeding and reforestation, repair of roads and bridges, trail reconstruction, and staff support.
For now, if you’d like to help by giving to the PSA, we’ll work with Philmont to determine how best to apply your donation when the time comes. Your contribution may not go directly to repair or rebuild a lost building, but rest assured it will go to continue making Philmont a premiere high-adventure experience for Scouts for years to come. This is not a PSA fundraiser – 100% of your contribution will go to Philmont for fire support.
The map picture shows Philmont’s traditional boundaries, the Valle Vidal area north of Philmont, Cimarron, Ute Park, and the fire boundary as of 6/7.
For large donations over $1,000, we recommend using the “Send Check” option during check out before placing your order.
