TART Trails relies on the generous contributions of individuals, families, businesses, and local organizations. Your contributions enable TART to continue to make our community more distinctive and livable.

DONATE TODAY and help TART enrich the Traverse region by providing a network of trails, bikeways and pedestrian ways; and encouraging their use.

We also offer the following  donation options:
