MARIPOSA TRAILS is intentional about maintaining low overhead, steadfast in our support and value of volunteers, and, maximizes our productivity through partnerships and grants. Our organization is comprised solely of volunteers; your financial support is essential to sustain our work in the community.

Sustaining Fund

This fund pays for overhead costs, promotional materials and essential day-to-day functions of MARIPOSA TRAILS, including organizing and leading “Tending the Trail” work outings; managing race and recreation events; obtaining and managing grants; coordinating with partners; conducting public outreach; promoting MARIPOSA TRAILS; and, securing fiscal sponsorships.

Volunteer Rewards Fund

To show our appreciation for the time and energy that trail volunteers provide our community, MARIPOSA TRAILS rewards volunteers by providing trail tools and personal protective equipment, as well as delicious refreshments at the end of trail work days. We also throw an annual volunteer appreciation party at the end of the season. Help us thank our volunteers by making a donation to this fund.

Matching Grants Fund

Since 2017, MARIPOSA TRAILS has contributed thousands of hours of volunteer time to rebuild community trails. This would not have been possible, however, without grant funds that were used to purchase trail tools and personnel protective equipment. Most grants require a substantive fiscal contribution or match from applicants, however. Donate to this fund so we can continue to compete for grant funds.
