Your Gifts Build Community
We love our members. They’re helping TRAIL build a caring community of and for older adults in Johnson County. But membership fees are just one source of TRAIL’s revenue stream.
As is true for many other aging-in-place organizations across the country, TRAIL is a nonprofit that relies on philanthropic support to help sustain our operations and serve our members’ needs and interests. We are an IRC Sec. 501(c)(3) charitable organization, and all gifts are tax-deductible as allowed by law. Our EIN is 81-3616856.
Contributions from members, friends and business partners are directed toward yearly expenses that keep TRAIL strong, from staffing to member services. Private gifts also help underwrite our Supported Membership Program for income-eligible households throughout Johnson County.
Giving is easy! Just click the DONATE NOW button above to access our secure online giving page. You may also send your check, payable to TRAIL of Johnson County, to the address listed at the bottom of this page. Even simpler, consider giving to TRAIL on a monthly basis through automatic withdrawal from your bank account or credit card. Click here to download the necessary form with instructions.
You can also help ensure that TRAIL is able to continue fulfilling its mission in the years to come by including us in your estate plans, whether through a will or trust, retirement
assets, or other charitable instrument. Learn more about estate planning in this
article, and then, when you’d like to discuss including TRAIL in your plans, download
and fill out this statement of gift intent; or just contact us at 319-800-9003 so we can learn more about your philanthropic goals.
Local businesses and organizations can play a role in TRAIL's success through our Corporate Sponsorship Program. Review our current sponsorship opportunities and contact Susan Shullaw at [email protected] for more information.
All annual contributors of $50 or more are recognized in our online honor roll, and all donors receive our monthly “TRAIL Guide” newsletter to keep you up to date on our activities.
