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!

2023 Spring Appeal

Our 24th season of programs is fast approaching and we couldn’t have come this far without you. Your support provides a unique transformative experience for underserved youth, helping them to gain a greater understanding of themselves and the lives of others, and an interest in climbing and the outdoors. Summer is nearing and we can’t wait to get the kids back to the cliff. Here is the view from above...

  • Beginning June 26th for seven weeks we will welcome groups of 8-9 students to the Kismet house on Sunday for the week.
  • This year we will welcome back 5 returning groups and 2 new student groups.
  • Teams of devoted staff, interns, and volunteers will support students on their journey at the cliff and in the house.
  • Kismet staff and interns will include nine alumni of the Kismet program.
  • The week will be filled with climbing area cliffs such as Cathedral Ledge, Whitehorse, Square Ledge, and Echo Crag to name few.
  • There will be family-style dinners, stargazing, music, and a special BBQ.
  • We will share stories, kindness, laughter, and inspiration.

Kismet is a family dedicated to empowering students by letting them know they are seen, heard, loved, and valued. With your support, we will continue to provide this amazing and life changing platform for their growth.

Please consider supporting Kismet and help us reach our goal of $55,000. Every gift counts towards providing healthy meals, transportation, and climbing guides, at no expense to the student families. Thank you for making this a reality!
