Sustainer’s Circle of Donors

Learn more about joining the Sustainer’s Circle of Donors.

Sustainer’s Circle donors are those who contribute $1,000 or more to TART Trails annually. They provide important funding that enables TART Trails to work toward five goals: increase miles of trail; ensure sustainable, comprehensive maintenance for the entire trail system; ensure sustained support of mission and vision; improve infrastructure and safe access for non-motorized users; contribute to the social, economic, environmental and community health of the region. More information here.

Sustainer’s Circle donors are invited each year to TART Trails’ Oktoberfest celebration. This gathering of the TART Trails’ family is an annual highlight for Sustainers. Executive Director, Julie Clark, provides updates on projects, programs and what lies ahead. The annual Jim Mudgett Trail Pioneer Award is also presented to a champion of trails in the region.

TART Trails also hosts a number of Sustainers’ events each year. These fun and informal events give us a chance to get out on the trails together and provide a chance for Sustainers to learn more about the network they are helping to support. Click here to view the 2020 Sustainer’s Circle of Donors events.
