Donate to the Trail Fund

Support the trails you ride

Support the trails you ride by sending a tax-deductible, direct donation to the Alliance Trail Fund. 

Every donated dollar made here goes to building, supporting, and maintaining mountain biking resources in our region.

The Alliance Trail Fund is used for shovel-ready projects or other priority needs on trails. The fund is built up through a variety of sources, from individual donations to corporate sponsorships. Contributions are used to provide materials & tools to volunteer projects or to hire contractors, and they are often also leveraged with other revenue such as grants. Since our founding in Fall 2013, the Alliance has managed over $300,000 worth of improvements to our region’s trails.
