    Are you a 501(c3 corp? Will these deductions be tax deductible?

    Considering the exorbitant peak fees foreign agencies pay, and the cost associated with climbing Everest per person, then considering the millions of dollars earned by the government from these fees, I cannot help but feel resentful of the request, once again, of us foreigners to send even more money. It is up to the Nepalese to hold their government accountable for sharing this money, and for all to overcome the incredible corruption shrouding this entire country.
