Who We Are &
How You Can Help
The Colorado Trail Foundation is a non-profit organization that oversees the work of hundreds of volunteers devoted to keeping the Trail in great condition. Most of that work is accomplished by trail crews lasting from one to eight days and by hundreds of individuals and groups that adopt sections of the Trail and conduct annual maintenance. Grants and individual contributions from hundreds of supporters provide the $500,000 needed annually to sustain CTF’s efforts.
Volunteer. Contribute. Spread the word. Volunteers are the life-blood of the organization. Without them, there would be no Trail. Most supporters began as Trail users. Touched by how the experience has enriched their lives, they seek a way to give back. Some love the pick-and-shovel work of trail building and maintenance. Others participate in mailing parties, helping send out newsletters to raise funds. Some support our office staff with data entry, writing thank-you notes, and doing other tasks. Many write checks or donate online to support the Foundation’s ongoing work and encourage others to do the same.
