Give monthly

Join the Trail stewards with monthly donations starting at just $5. This elite group of members shares benefits with our annual members but enjoys an added benefit of never receiving a renewal notice from ATC. We save time, effort and postage, use less paper and put more of your donations to work on the A.T. It’s an efficient and cost effective way to give.
