Blaze a TRAIL by giving

Contributions from generous donors have been essential during TRAIL's pre-launch phase and in building the strong financial foundation from which the organization will grow. Donors to these early giving societies have provided TRAIL with important start-up funding:

  • Founding Families, which pays tribute to family members making outright gifts or two-year pledges of $5,000 or more; and
  • TRAIL Blazers, which recognizes individuals making three-year pledges totaling $1,500 or more.

TRAIL contributors Julie Schweser (left) and Sara Rynes-Weller were among the 40+ friends and supporters who attended TRAIL’s first Progress Party on October 26, 2016.

In addition, we are pleased to recognize contributors at these giving levels:

  • TRAIL Builders, who make outright gifts or pledges of $1,000 or more per year; and
  • TRAIL Supporters, who make outright gifts or pledges of $250 to $999 per year.

We gratefully acknowledge individuals and organizations making pledge commitments at these levels in the honor roll below. If you would like to join them, simply click on the Donate button above, or download the TRAIL contribution form and return to us. You can also arrange monthly gift payments via automatic withdrawals from your bank account or credit card; just download the ACH Form and return along with your pledge form. TRAIL is an IRC Sec. 501(c)(3) charitable organization and all contributions are deductible to the extent allowed by law.

Thank you to all TRAIL contributors. Every gift matters and is gratefully received!
