The Summit Mountain Rentals Foundation

The Summit Mountain Rentals Foundation is our way of giving back to the community we love and have called home since 2006. The Summit Mountain Rentals Foundation was established in 2016 in colaboration with the Summit Foundation to support important local initatives and community needs including adult education, animal well-being, affordable housing, and outdoor and recreational maintence programs. Our generous homeowners can choose to contribute 3% of their rental revenue to the fund, and we match that contribution. So far, we've donated tens of thousands of dollars to local programs and efforts and are on track to continue as well as grow those contributions.
