Your support makes a difference! When you choose to join as a member or donate to one of our non-profit partners, your support of the NET goes a long way. We are able to run our trail crews, offer online and map resources, train volunteers, and plan for the long term protection of the trail because of supporters like you. Thank you!

The New England Trail is managed by the Appalachian Mountain Club in Massachusetts, and the Connecticut Forest & Park Association in Connecticut. A donation to either of these organizations using the links below will help support conservation, protection, and outreach efforts along the trail. 

Corporate Giving

The NET has been the beneficiary of philanthropic contributions from a wide variety of companies and company foundations from the outdoor industry and beyond. These companies understand the importance and value in supporting the NET’s efforts in protecting this iconic trail.

Estate / Planned Giving 

The future of the NET will be built on today’s planned and deferred gifts. Together with our most loyal donors, we will be able to ensure this National Scenic Trail is protected and preserved for many generations to come.

If you are planning or would like to include the NET in your plans, we hope you will let us know. Providing us with notice of your intention is the best way to ensure that your gift is used just as you wish. We can provide valuable information about a variety of options that you can then discuss with your professional advisors. Some examples include wills and bequests, charitable gift annuities, or beneficiary designations.
