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 donor this year! [Scroll down the page to see our latest honor roll of contributors.]

Annual gifts help TRAIL cover yearly expenses that keep our organization healthy, from staffing and supplies to community events. Contributions from individuals also help underwrite our Supported Membership Program for income-eligible households. TRAIL’s long-term goal is to achieve a balanced funding mix that is roughly 50 percent membership fees and 50 percent gifts and grants. Annual fund gifts are a critical component of our revenue stream.

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, and are invited to donor appreciation events.

The honor roll below is one way of expressing our thanks to current annual fund contributors, whose gifts are helping to ensure TRAIL’s financial stability this year and in all the years to come. We also are deeply grateful to those who've directed recent tribute gifts to TRAIL in honor or in memory of friends and loved ones recognized below. THANK YOU!
