Donate to Support Kismet Youth

Kismet Rock Foundation nourishes the physical, intellectual, and emotional development of rural and urban children throughout New England before they enter their formative teen years. Our success in redirecting the path and supporting the potential of children is accomplished by providing a comprehensive education in technical rock climbing within the context of a stable and loving family-like atmosphere. Your contributions make this possible, thank you!

25 Years of Kismet Rock Foundation

Dear Friend,

As we approach our 25th year of summer programs we are surrounded by a deep appreciation and enthusiastic anticipation for the opportunity to continue the remarkable work of Kismet Rock Foundation.

Our first group will arrive at the Kismet House on June 30 with students representing nine schools to begin our seven weeks of wonder with some incredible youth from around New England. This is possible thanks to the generosity of many.

Enjoy this excerpt from Sam a 2015 Kismet graduate.

"...The Kismet Rock Foundation holds a special place in my heart, as it played a pivotal role in shaping the trajectory of my life during my teenage years. At a time when I was navigating the complexities of adolescence, struggling to find my place in the world, this remarkable program extended its guiding hand and offered me a beacon of hope and support. Through its unwavering dedication to nurturing the potential within each young individual, the Foundation not only saved my life but also illuminated a path towards personal growth and fulfillment..."

Kismet is a family dedicated to helping students develop holistically by embracing community, empowerment, wellness and joy. With your support, we will continue to provide this amazing and life changing platform for their growth.

Please consider supporting Kismet as we enter this milestone season. Every gift counts towards providing healthy meals, transportation, and climbing guides, at no expense to the students’ families. Thank you for making this a reality!

Your gift will count toward our NH Gives day of giving on June 11 and help us meet our match of $5,000 generously gifted from trustee Pete Masterson.

Sincerely gratefule,

Krissy Fraser
Executive Director
