The N.O.D. Everest Foundation, a 501(c)3 entity was founded to benefit a handful of philanthropic and educational pursuits. We also work to bring funding to Nepal through education and service projects - including a new partnership for a study abroad program with Colorado Mountain College. Each year the "Everest Scholarship" is awarded to a graduating high school senior from an Eagle County High School in the amount of up to $2000 based on need. Students attending Colorado Mountain College will also use our funding in a scholarship in the Nepal study abroad program.
The N.O.D. Basketball Academy annual basketball camps. Every year proceeds benefit a graduating high school senior for college with the "Everest Scholarship".
Mentoring to youth through visits to schools both locally, regionally, and nationally. This includes visits to classrooms and for school assemblies to educate our kids into making the right choices. The focus is motivation, teamwork, goal setting, and working hard in sports or in the classroom, which translates over into real life. We have also recently launched a study abroad program for Colorado Mountain College, taking young men and women to the Everest region to support several of our ongoing service projects in partnership with the Sherpa Foundation.
