Donate To The Arizona Trail Association

Your donation to the Arizona Trail Association is an investment in the future of the Arizona National Scenic Trail. Every dollar you give helps protect, maintain, enhance, promote and sustain the Arizona Trail as a unique encounter with the land.

Arizona Trail Association

Donate to our General Fund so we can continue our programs and operations and build our capacity to fulfill our mission. Dollars donated to this fund help with everything the ATA does to protect, maintain, enhance, promote and sustain the trail.

Trail Maintenance & Development

Donate directly to our Trail Maintenance & Development Fund. 100% of every dollar, usually heavily augmented by considerable volunteer time, mileage and effort, goes directly into the trail, and will support professional trail crews working on various passages of the AZT, as well as supplies for volunteer work events.

Seeds of Stewardship

Donate to our Seeds of Stewardship Fund. This important youth outreach and education initiative allows us to take middle school and high school age youth on the AZT for enriching outdoor experiences; integrates their curriculum into on-the-trail activities; and engages youth in volunteer service learning projects – empowering them to become the next generation of stewards of Arizona’s wild lands.

Memorial Donations

Make a donation to honor and remember someone who has passed on.
