Providing Support for British Climbers and Mountaineers to Explore the World's Mountainous Regions Since 2016

Set up in 2016, the MACC Fund supports the Alpine Club's most intrepid and audacious expeditions. Pushing the vanguard of exploratory climbing in its purest form, MACC expeditions are long and technical, requiring astonishing levels of expertise and endurance among secluded and inhospitable environments.

About the Fund:

The MACC Fund offers cash rewards, up to a total of £10,000 every year, to British climbers and mountaineers to explore the world's mountainous regions. The aim being; to attempt first ascents and/or new routes in remote areas, or explore little-known alpine terrain. They are given to established teams of experienced alpinists attempting high profile routes off the beaten track, and less well-established teams launching their expedition careers.

Usually Split between eight recipients, the awards are offered bi-annually in March and November.

Eligible expeditions must include at least one member of the Alpine Club and the number of Alpine Club members will influence the size of the grant offered.
