Our Trustees

The Martin Moran Foundation was established by the Moran family to honour the life and legacy of celebrated mountain guide and explorer Martin Moran.


We understand the positive impact that mountain adventure can have on all areas of our lives and we are passionate about creating opportunities for young people, who otherwise would not have access to wild spaces and expert instruction.
