The Friends of Northampton Trails and Greenways is participating in the biggest giving event of the year. Please consider contributing to FNTG as part of Valley Gives on Wednesday, December 12,2012. We are a small member based 501©(3) non-profit that works to support the local network. We have no paid staff. Since our founding in 2006, we have raised more than $20,000 to help support trail design, construction and improvements. This year, we have a goal of $5,000 to help connect the trails to new neighborhoods throughout the City.
For 24 hours on 12/12/12, contributions to FNTG will make us eligible for special grants of up to $15,000 through the Valley Gives program. The more online donations we receive, the more likely we are to win one of these grants. You can help to make that happen!
It’s easy to support FNTG during this exciting new giving event. Simply go to www.fntg.net and click on the “Valley Gives” link on the right sidebar. Funds raised will be used to support rail trail development and improvements, and will leverage city, state and federal dollars.
I’ve made a Valley Gives donation to the Friends of Northampton Trails and Greenways because I believe that the rail trails in our community are an investment in our future that benefit us all. I hope that you can do so as well.
See you on the trails!
Nicholas Horton, President
