Expedition Capital Fund
The proceeds of the inaugural Remarkables Ice and Mixed Festival were kindly donated as seed funding and the commitment has been made by the organisers to donate the proceeds from subsequent years.
On current projections, this will establish a Capital Fund of over $100,000 within 10 years. In turn, NZAC has made the commitment not to draw down on the Expedition Capital Fund for five years and to only draw upon the interest earned in any given year after that.
Watch out for this logo in our supporters' stores, or ask when making your climbing purchases, "Are you an NZAC Expedition Capital Fund Supporter?".
