Sustainer’s Circle of Donors


Susan & Chuck Cady at Oktoberfest 2015

Please Join the Sustainer’s Circle of Donors Today! 

Sustainer’s Circle donors are those who contribute $1000 or more to TART Trails’ general operations. They provide important funding that enables TART Trails to work toward five goals: increase miles of trail; ensure sustainable, comprehensive maintenance for the entire trail system; ensure sustained support of mission and vision; improve infrastructure and safe access for non-motorized users; contribute to the social, economic, environmental and community health of the region.

Sustainer’s Circle donors embrace our long-term vision of happy, active people enjoying a world-class trail system.

Sustainer’s Circle donors are invited each year to TART Trails’ Oktoberfest celebration. This gathering of the TART Trails’ family is an annual highlight for Sustainers. Executive Director, Julie Clark, provides updates on projects, programs and what lies ahead. The annual Jim Mudgett Trail Pioneer Award is also presented to a champion of trails in the region.


We are grateful to the following individuals and organizations for their support…
♥ Sustainer’s Circle donors for 5 to 9 years
♥♥ Sustainer’s Circle donors for 10 to 14 years
♥♥♥ Sustainer’s Circle donors for 15 or more years
