Friends of the Paso del Norte Trail

The Friends of the Paso del Norte Trail is a community-based donation effort that directly supports trail development, amenities, and programming. With each donation, we will provide an appreciation package that matches the level of support. We would be more than happy to discuss what your interests are as an individual, organization, or company and how we can show our appreciation for your support as a Friend of the PDN Trail. Appreciation packages can include social media spotlights, newsletter spotlights, logo on trail merchandise, signs along the trail, and more!

Legacy Donors

Legacy donations support extensive trail-building, large-scale amenities, and major trailheads. Legacy donors will receive an appreciation package that includes multiple social media spotlights, special recognition in the monthly trail newsletter and website, branding on amenities and marketing materials, and recognition on the donor wall at trailheads. 

$25,000 - $100,000

These legacy donations will be used to support trail-building efforts, amenities, and event planning. These donations can also be used as leverage to secure larger state and federal grant opportunities that typically require matching funds. For example, a $50,000 donation provides a 20% match for a $250,000 grant opportunity.

$25,000 - $100,000

$100,000+

These larger legacy donations can directly support the development of longer trail segments, trailheads, and access points. These donations can also be used as leverage to secure large grant opportunities that further increase trail development and implementation.
