NWTA has been recommended for funding thru Oregon Parks & Recreation for an 2010 RTP grant requesting $90,000 towards project for purchase of trail machine, enclosed trailer, and operator training. But NWTA needs to raise about $18,000 in match funding (we have secured $8,000 so far), and this shuttle fundraiser event will generate at least another $4,000 towards our goal.
How to earn a shuttle pass
Step 1: Donate! To donate, use the NWTA Shopping Cart -- http://nw-trail.org/donateST240 a) add amount to cart, b) click Shopping Cart link to Checkout (and pay by credit card). You can specify a larger amount if you wanted to. why donate more? I dunno, say, maybe because you wanted to attend Saturday evening shuttle event as well which requires minimum donation of $75 and just cuz you are giving to help pay for an awesome trail building machine to be owned and managed by NWTA under a new "Trail Development Partnership Program" (being developed).
To donate by mailing in a personal check, contact email@example.com for instructions and be sure to specify ST240 donation in memo.
