Ways to Give

Celebrate being part of the North Country National Scenic Trail’s history and become part of its future. The beauty and spirit of the Trail is something we cannot afford to lose.

Support the Trail, support the work.

Join, renew, or give a gift membership. Membership matters. You become a member of a Trail Community that believes the spirit and beautification of the North Country National Scenic Trail needs protection and maintenance, building and promotion. You believe it’s important to belong to something larger than yourself. You believe it’s important to keep the Trail the premier hiking path across the northern tier of the United States.

Make a gift today. Every day of the week and at any time of the day, someone is experiencing the North Country Trail. Whether it’s a family’s first time, a wanderluster following the blue blazes, or a volunteer being welcomed into the Trail Community – this happens because of you. Your gift is hard at work supporting important Chapter projects, providing important programming, and impacting lives. Make a one-time gift, become a sustaining donor with monthly support, or join the Founders Circle. Your gift builds your North Country Trail.

Become a member of the Founders Circle. This major donor group is made up of generous individuals who make annual contributions to the Association that total $500 or more.

Founders Circle members’ philanthropic support provides sustainable funding allowing the Association’s mission to continue and thrive. You can be a part of this important trail support community by joining or giving today.
