The TRAILS FOREVER FUND
The TRAILS FOREVER FUND allows BCHA to continue to save and protect our American trails for future generations. Current BCHA members, corporations and sponsors, and the “trail loving” public are invited to donate to help keep our access to the natural world through healthy, well-maintained trails.
TRAILS FOREVER FUND supports the knowledge and growth of the organization and its Chapters and Members through out the United States
Growth is critical for BCHA at this “tipping point” in its history. BCHA has become a well-known and well-respected entity to land managers, federal policy makers, legislators (both local and national) and other trail support groups. And each month, new chapters are being formed nationally, as more trail users recognize the need to keep multi-use trails open for future generations.
Growth is essential to BCHA’s future. Because BCHA is a grassroots organization, growth for BCHA must come through it’s chapters across the US.
Trails Forever Fund donations will be split between the BCHA Education Foundation (30% of funds), which offers a competitive grant program for chapters, providing more funding for boots-on-the-ground work; and the BCHA national organization. (70% of funds)
The donations retained by the BCHA national organization will be dedicated to projects that directly improve the knowledge, operations and membership levels of state and chapter organizations.
Examples of these projects include:
- Providing more resources to state BCH chapters
- Providing more education to grassroots members and leadership
- Improving advocacy for trails at the state and national level
- Developing youth programs to identify tomorrow’s trail riders and leaders
We hope you share our enthusiasm about the future of BCHA with the establishment of this fund. You can help by making a pledge to the fund, either a recurring donation, a one-time pledge, or by including the fund in your estate plans.
