The Sharmafund


Founded in 1998 by legendary rock climber Chris Sharma, the Sharmafund is a project dedicated to giving underprivileged kids the enriching experience of outdoor rock climbing.


The Sharmafund is dedicated to:

  • Reaching out to financially underprivileged youth who wish to enrich their lives through rock climbing.
  • Teaching them to push themselves, believe in themselves, and realize their strengths and limitless abilities.
  • Inspiring them to connect with nature and realize the importance of preserving our wild lands.
  • Bringing businesses in the outdoor industry together to make this type of outdoor experience available to young people who do not have the means.
