Joining the Triangle Rails-to-Trails Conservancy

Donations of any amount are gladly accepted and needed. TRTC will continue to apply for trails-related grants but funds from memberships and donations remain an important mechanism for acquiring tools and supplies used in our year-round efforts to maintain the ATT and other local trails. Please indicate a specific project or use for funds if you like. If not specified, funds will be gratefully utilized as needed to build and promote the American Tobacco Trail. Since 2000 TRTC has been applying a portion of all membership donations to an American Tobacco Trail Endowment Fund to ensure that resources for developing the ATT and its Trailheads will be available for the future. You may want to browse our 2018 End-of-Year Letter for a look at our recent accomplishments.

As of the end of October 2023 over $11,000 had been pledged to the American Tobacco Trail Endowment.
