With every innovation, new idea, or bold action, there comes a moment in time when that project faces a turning point. Either the vision energizes supporters to push through the inevitable resistance that confronts anything new, or the forces of complacency and apathy win, and the innovation dies. The Blue Star Trail is at such a turning point right now.
Here’s the exciting news:
These grants are the project’s most significant milestones to date. The competition for these grants is fierce. Hundreds of applications are filed each year, but only the very best trailway projects receive these dollars. Once granted, the funds keep coming year after year for continued construction as long as we meet the construction match requirements and demonstrate our ability to raise the accompanying engineering fees.
We need your help now in a way we never have. We humbly ask that you thoughtfully consider a more generous gift of support than you may ever have thought of providing. Why?
Many generous Friends have already made donations or are fulfilling pledges of support. Thank you! This special appeal is to close the current funding gap upon which the success of the entire project turns.
