Start-Up Campaign

Grateful For Great Beginnings

Before TRAIL opened for business, making sure the young organization could launch from a solid financial base was a high priority for the Board of Directors. Toward that end, we initiated an ambitious fundraising campaign with a goal of reaching $120,000 in three-year gift commitments by April 2017. The community responded with remarkable generosity, enabling TRAIL to exceed its fundraising goal by more than $5,000.

We are pleased and grateful to recognize our start-up campaign contributors in the honor roll below. Thank you for your generosity and belief in our mission of helping older adults in Johnson County live more safely and comfortably in their own homes as they age.
