Erik Schultz visiting the building site - June 2010

In 1998 Erik Schultz was involved in a skiing accident on North Peak that left him a paraplegic. The Mono County Search and Rescue Team was involved in Erik's rescue and helped to save his life. Mr. Schultz never forgot about his rescue and has been donating to the team for years.

In 2010 after receiving our fund raising letter for a permanent Search and Rescue Building, Mr. Schultz visited the team and the site for the proposed building. During his visit he made a decision to make sure that our dream of a SAR home could come true. Eric is the executive director of his father's philanthropic foundation, the Arthur B. Schultz Foundation, but as the Foundation's charter would not accommodate donating to our building fund, Erik's father Arthur has decided to personally give us an incredibly generous matching grant.

Mr. Arthur B. Schultz has agreed to make a 1:1 matching grant up to $250,000. This means that he will match every dollar we raise starting July 6, 2010 up to a maximum of $250,000. In-kind donations such as construction, infrastructure, site preparation, labor, and equipment will also be valued and counted toward matching funds.
