These fmancial statements are the responsibility of Appalachian Mountain Club's management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these fmancial statements based on our audits. We conducted our audits in accordance with U.S. generally accepted auditing standards. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the fmancial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion. In our opinion, the consolidated fmancial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the consolidated financial position of the Appalachian Mountain Club and affiliates as of December 31,2011 and 2010, and the changes in their net assets and cash flows for the years then ended in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles.

See Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements. - 4 -APPALACHIAN MOUNTAIN CLUB NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS YEARS ENDED DECEMBER 31, 2011 AND 2010 A. Organization: The Appalachian Mountain Club, together with its consolidated affiliates (collectively, the "AMC"), is a not-for-profit environmental conservation and recreation corporation with the mission of promoting the protection, enjoyment and understanding of the mountains, forest, waters, and trails of the Appalachian Region. In pursuit of this aim it provides educational and experiential opportunities to its membership and the general public in the belief that successful conservation depends on this experience. Backcountry shelter and lodging facilities, trail maintenance programs, land stewardship, scientific research, environmental conservation, and local chapter activities together with the publication of guidebooks, maps, and a variety of other publications further this mission . B. Summary of Significant Accounting and Reporting Policies: The significant accounting policies followed by the AMC are as follows: Basis of Presentation The accompanying consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the AMC, its affiliates, and its volunteer-managed facilities and chapters. All significant intercompany accounts and transactions are eliminated in the consolidated financial statements. Estimates The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make certain estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities . Significant estimates for the AMC include the present value of future cash flows from pledges receivable, the allowance for doubtful accounts in connection with pledges receivable, allowances for inventory obsolescence and accrued liabilities, and the fair value of investments. Actual results could differ from those estimates. Basis of Accounting The accompanying consol idated financial statements of the AMC for the years ended December 31, 2011 and 2010 are prepared on the accrual basis of accounting in accordance with U.S . generally accepted accounting principles. Contributions received, including unconditional promises to give, are recognized as revenues in the period received at their fair values. Restricted contributions that are received and expensed in the current year for the restricted purpose are recorded as unrestricted contributions. Net assets are reported by classification based on the existence or absence of donor imposed restrictions : Unrestricted net assets include all resources which are not subject to donor-imposed restrictions. Activity in unrestricted net assets is shown in the Consolidated Statements of Activities classified as Operating and Other. Unrestricted-Operating revenues consist of revenues, endowment spending allocations, and special project funding which supp0l1 annual operating and program expenses of the organization. Unrestricted-Operating expenses consist of annual operating expenses of the organization related to member services, outdoor program centers, other programs, publications, administrative, and annual fundraising. Unrestricted-Other revenues and expenses include unrestricted revenues and expenses from capital fundraising campaigns, income and gains (losses) from investments, interest expense and other financing costs, allocation of a portion of depreciation expense reflecting asset acquisitions that are funded through donor contributions, and the reduction in land carrying value in 2011 (see note G). - 5 -APP ALACHIAN MOUNTAIN CLUB NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS YEARS ENDED DECEMBER 31,2011 AND 2010 Summary of Significant Accounting and RepOiting Policies, Continued Basis of Accounting, Continued Temporarily restricted net assets carry specific, donor-imposed restrictions on the expenditure or other use of contributed funds . Temporary restrictions may expire either because of the passage of time or because certain actions are taken by the AMC which fulfill the restrictions. When a donor restriction expires, temporarily restricted net assets are reclassified to unrestricted net assets and reported in the Consolidated Statements of Activities as use of restricted funds. Temporarily restricted net assets consist of the following at December 31 ,20 II and 20 I 0: Accumulated appreciation on permanently restricted net assets Funds for future operations and programs Donor pledges receivable $ $ 2011 3,659,234 7,564,584 907,349 12,131 ,167 $ $ 2010 3,920,457 9,213,909 4,155,136 17,289,502 Permanently restricted net assets are those that are subject to donor-imposed restrictions which will never lapse, thus requiring that the funds be retained permanently. Permanently restricted net assets consist of the original gift value of investments to be held indefinitely as endowment, the income of which is available to support celtain operations of the Appalachian Mountain Club. Investments Investments are carried at fair value based upon quoted market prices, when available, or estimates of fair value in the Consolidated Statements of Financial Position. Dividends, interest and net gainsllosses on investments are reflected in the Consolidated Statements of Activities. Investment income from restricted assets that is earned and used in the current year for the restricted purpose is recorded as unrestricted investment income. Planned Giving Agreements The AMC has planned giving agreements with donors consisting primarily of charitable gift annuities and pooled life income funds. Assets are invested and payments are made to donors and/or other beneficiaries in accordance with the agreements. Contribution revenue is recorded as restricted income when the agreements are executed, measured by the fair value of assets received net of the liabilities for future payments to donors . Investments are adjusted to fair value, and the liabilities for future payments are adjusted based on donor life expectancies and on prevailing interest rates. Cash Equivalents Cash equivalents are comprised of highly liquid investments, with a maturity of less than three months at the time of investment. This may include money market deposits or other similar investments. - 6 -APP ALACHIAN MOUNTAIN CLUB NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS YEARS ENDED DECEMBER 31,2011 AND 2010 Summary of Significant Accounting and Reporting Policies, Continued Accounts Receivable Accounts receivable are stated at the amount management expects to collect from outstanding balances. The allowance for doubtful accounts is determined by applying a percentage against total receivables, based on management's judgment concerning the future collectability of the receivables. Amounts considered to be past due are charged against the allowance when the account is referred to a collection agency, or otherwise deemed uncollectible. Inventories Inventories, principally retail merchandise and books, are stated at the lower of cost (on an average cost method) or market. Propelty and Equipment Property and equipment are recorded at historical cost or fair value at date of gift or bequest. Major renewals and improvements are capitalized, while maintenance and repairs are expensed when incurred. Depreciation is determined using the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives . Estimated lives for building and improvements, land improvements, furniture, fixtures, and equipment range from 3 to 40 years. Donated Services The financial statements do not include amounts for donated services since an objective basis for measurement of the value of such services is not available, and these services are not specialized as defined by U.S . generally accepted accounting principles; however, substantial numbers of volunteers have donated significant amounts of their time and energy to the AMC. Concentration of Credit Risk Financial instruments which potentially subject the AMC to concentrations of credit risk consist principally of cash and cash equivalents and short term investments. The Organization is not aware of any concentrations of credit risks as of December 31, 20 II and 20 I O. Tax Status The AMC has been granted a tax exemption under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. In determining the recognition of uncertain tax positions, the AMC recognizes the financial statement impact of a tax position when it is more likely than not that the position will be sustained upon examination by a taxing authority. As of December 31, 20 II, the AMC has no uncertain tax positions that qualify for either recognition or disclosure in the consolidated financial statements. Subsequent Events The date to whieh events occurring after December 31, 20 II have been evaluated for possible adjustment to the consolidated financial statements or disclosure is the date of the Independent Auditors' Report which is the date the consolidated financial statements were available to be issued. - 7 -C.

APPALACHIAN MOUNTAIN CLUB NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS YEARS ENDED DECEMBER 31,2011 AND 2010 Investments, Continued The components of gains (losses) from investments for the years ended December 31, 2011 and 2010 are as follows: 2011 2010 Realized gains, net $ 924,520 $ 1,252,252 Unrealized gains (losses), net (1,941,920) 3,554,096 Change in value of planned giving agreements {I 00,699~ 52,451 Total gains (losses), net $ (1,118,099) $ 4,858,799 Pledges Receivable: Pledges receivab le of $907,349 and $4,155,136 are recorded in the consolidated financial statements as of December 31, 2011 and December 31,20 10, respectively. Pledges are recorded at the present value of estimated future cash flows. The present va lue of est imated future cash flows has been measured uti lizing a risk free-rate of return (1.6% at December 31,20 II and 3.2% at December 31,2010). The resulting discount amounted to $30,481 at December 31 , 2011 and $81,028 at December 31, 2010. An allowance of $100,817 has been made for potentially unfu lfilled pledges at December 31 , 20 11 and $461,682 at December 31,2010. Pledges, net of discounts and allowances, are expected to be collected as fo llows: In one year or less Between one and five years Greater than five years Total Pledges Receivable $ $ 352,5 62 $ 529,831 24,956 907,349 $ 3,388,028 745,103 22,005 4,155,136 E. Endowment: The AMC's endowment consists of approximately 90 individual funds estab lished for a variety of purposes. It includes both donor-restricted endowment funds and funds designated by the Board of Directors to function as endowments. As required by U.S. general ly accepted accounting principles, net assets associated with endowment funds , inc luding funds designated by the Board of Di rectors to function as endowments, are classified and reported based on the existence or absence of donor-imposed restrictions. The AMC interprets the Uniform Prudent Management of Institutional Funds Act (UPMlFA) as requiring the preservation of the fair value of the original gift as of the gift date of the donor-restricted endowment funds absent explicit donor stipulations to the contrary. As a result, the AMC classifies as permanently restricted net assets (a) the origina l va lue of gifts donated to the permanent endowment, (b) the origina l value of subsequent gifts to the permanent endowment, and (c) accumu lations to the permanent endowment made in accordance with the direction of the applicable donor gift instrument at the time the accumulation is added to the fund. The remaining pOltion of the donor-restricted net assets is classified as temporarily restricted net assets until those amounts are appropriated for expenditure by the AMC. - 9 -APPALACHIAN MOUNTAIN CLUB NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS YEARS ENDED DECEMBER 31,2011 AND 2010 Endowment, Continued In accordance with UPMIFA, when making a determination to appropriate or accumu late donor-restricted endowment funds , the AMC cons iders factors which include: the duration and preservation of the fund; the purposes of the AMC and the donor-restricted endowment fund; general economic conditions; the possible effect of inflation and deflation; the expected tota l return from income and the appreciation of investments; other resources of the AMC; and the investment policies of the AMC. The endowment net assets composition by type of fund as of December 31, 2011 and 2010 is as follows: 2011 Temporarily Permanently Unrestricted Restricted Restricted Total Donor restricted endowment funds $ $ 8,530,485 $ 3,23 1,659 $ 11,762,144 Board designated endowment funds 38,726,590 38,726,590 Endowment Net Assets, End of Year $ 38,726,590 $ 8,530,485 $ 3,231,659 $ 50,488,734 2010 Temporarily Permanently Unrestricted Restricted Restricted Tota l Donor restricted endowment funds $ $ 9,384,622 $ 3,164,640 $ 12,549,262 Board designated endowment funds 38,006,245 38,006,245 Endowment Net Assets, End of Year $ 38,006,245 $ 9,384,622 $ 3,164,640 $ 50,555,507 The changes in endowment net assets for the years ended December 31,2011 and 2010 are as follows: 2011 Temporarily Permanently Unrestricted Restricted Restricted Total Endowment Net Assets, Beginning of Year $ 38,006,245 $ 9,384,622 $ 3,164,640 $ 50,555,507 Net assets released from restriction 376,446 (376,446) Investment income and gains (losses), net 107,910 (80,105) (43,965) (16,160) Contributions and transfers 2,097,140 (397,586) 110,984 1,810,538 Appropriations of cumulative ga ins ~1,861,15 1 2 ~1,861, 1 512 Endowment Net Assets, End of Year $ 38,726,590 $ 8,530,485 $ 3,231,659 $ 50,488,734 2010 Temporarily Permanently Unrestricted Restricted Restricted Total Endowment Net Assets, Beginning of Year $ 32,030,489 $ 8,506,265 $ 2,869,366 $ 43,406,120 Net assets released from restriction 410,651 (410,65 1) Investment income and gains, net 4,195,205 1,286,036 37,689 5,5 18,93 0 Contr i butions 3,178,944 2,972 257,585 3,439,501 Appropriations of cumulative gains ~1 ,809,0442 ~1,809,0442 Endowment Net Assets, End of Year $ 38,006,245 $ 9,384,622 $ 3,164,640 $ 50,555,507 - 10 -APPALACHIAN MOUNTAIN CLUB NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS YEARS ENDED DECEMBER 31,2011 AND 2010 Endowment, Continued From time to time, the fair value of assets associated with individual donor-restricted endowments may fa ll below the level that the donor or the UPMIF A requires the AMC to retain as a fund for perpetual duration. In accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, deficiencies of this nature that were repOJied in unrestricted net assets as of December 31, 2011 are $603. There were no deficiencies reported in unrestricted net assets as of December 31,2010 . The AMC's investment goal for the Endowment Fund is to provide a current spendable return consistent with the long-term preservation of assets in real terms. Endowment fund investments are exposed to various risks such as interest rate, credit, and overall market volatility. Accordingly, the AMC has established an asset allocation policy, investment guidelines and performance standards for the investment of the Fund's assets, in order to control risks and monitor investment performance. However, experience has shown that market performance wi ll vary and that the pOJifolio 's investment objectives may not be achievable during shOJi-term periods.
