Thank you to the Max

Give to the Max thank you

Yesterday, non-profit supporters across MN donated over $20 million to their favorite charities. Les Voyageurs is humbled to have received just over $12,000 during the 2016 Give to the Max Day. This funding will help us provide scholarships for participants as well as replace our Far North van. 

We offer a special thanks to Fred and Roberta Rupp for their $5,000 matching grant and to Fred's 1999 crew for their gift of $1,000. 

We are lucky to have such loyal and ardent supporters--and we are very grateful. Of all the "medium-sized" non-profits in MN (annual income between $100,000 and $999,999), Les Voyageurs placed 36th.

New Year, New Website!

We launched our first website in 2006. Since that time we've tried our best to stay up on the latest web functions for our guides and crews and the best way to tell visitors our story.

We're excited to present our redesigned website found at the same location ( We hope the new design gives a nice window into the Les Voyageurs program. We chose an option that would highlight our biggest asset--photos. Please be sure to tell anyone who might be interested in an expedition to take a look.

Please let us know if you have feedback or see something that needs to be changed or added.

And finally, we'd like to give a special shout-out to our LVI alumni who have helped us for years with web stuff. Thank you, John Pederson '99, '00 and David O'Keefe '02!
