Donate to the NSA








Donations brought Founder, Jurg Gfeller’s vision to reality 34 years ago, and they have continued to be integral to the National Ski Academy’s success.

Our community’s generosity ensures that the NSA can enhance all of our program areas, offering a robust and leading education and training regime that supports our student athletes to maximize their individual potential, preparing them for success on the ski hill and in the future.

Tuition alone does not cover the costs to operate NSA annually and donations are relied upon to make up the difference, as well as, respond to urgent campus needs and emerging priorities.




Act now to leverage the impact of your gift! Thanks to a generous parent donor, all donations made to NSA until the end of the 2020 calendar year will be matched up to $100,000! What does this mean? Every gift made to the school will not only be doubled in dollars, but it will double the impact it can make for NSA and our student-athletes. If your support is $5,000, the Academy will receive $10,000. If your support is $250, the Academy will receive $500. We invite you to join this donor by considering a contribution to NSA.
