Interested in becoming a member? Joining ACSD involves a $15 minimum tax-deductible donation (we are a 501(c)(3) non-profit) and a common desire to uphold our Mission and Bylaws. Check out our membership options below.

Option 1: ACSD – Access Fund Joint-Membership

We know many of you support both Local and National access organizations. Here’s a chance to combine both memberships and save a few bucks in the process.  Choose from the options below to Join (for new members), Renew (for current Joint members) for a minimum of $35, or Give a recurring monthly contribution as low as $5/month that will never let your membership expire (If you would like to registering as a joint membership, you will need to add $2/month to your monthly donation).

With the Access Fund Joint Membership, 40% of each joint membership goes to ACSD.  Contribute more to the Access Fund and you can get yourself a sweet Access Fund T-Shirt.  If you’d like to contribute more than $15 and have the amount go straight to ACSD, we encourage you to use the “Donate” button below for your additional contribution after you become a joint member.

Option 2: ACSD Membership

Our original ACSD membership option still stands for a very reasonable $15 minimum donation (with options to contribute more if you’d like).

Becoming a member of ACSD helps support the work we do such as trash clean up, graffiti removal, trail maintenance, working with local land managers to keep our crags open and educating the climbing community.

Option 4: Donate

And if you simply want to contribute money toward ACSD’s cause, but aren’t interested in becoming a member, we welcome donations as well.

Since ACSD is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, all donations are tax deductible. If you provide a return address with your donation, we’ll gladly send you a donation receipt for tax purposes.
