Annual Fund

Giving For The Greater Good

As TRAIL grows to serve greater numbers of older adults throughout Johnson County, yearly contributions from members and friends are needed to strengthen the TRAIL community. Please join us as an annual fund contributor this year!

Annual gifts help TRAIL cover yearly expenses that keep our organization healthy, from staffing and supplies to community events. Contributions also help underwrite our Supported Membership Program for income-eligible households. Want to learn more? Check out our annual fund FAQs.

To make supporting TRAIL even easier, consider making your annual gift via monthly withdrawals from your bank account or credit card. Click here to download the necessary form with instructions.

All contributors receive our monthly “TRAIL Guide” newsletter to keep them informed about our activities – including yearly fundraising progress. TRAIL’s long-term goal is to achieve a funding mix that is roughly 70 percent membership fees and 30 percent gifts and grants. But today, when TRAIL is still a young organization, that funding ratio is reversed. Annual fund gifts are a critical component of our revenue stream.

That’s why we’re so grateful to the annual fund contributors listed below, whose gifts to our current annual fund campaign are helping to ensure TRAIL’s financial stability this year and in all the years to come. THANK YOU!
