Making the Most of Your Legacy


Wondering About Your Charitable Giving Options?

If you’ve been wondering about your charitable giving options, we invite you to participate in our new webinar series, Making the Most of Your Legacy. Longtime Trail Conference supporter David J. Haas, president and founder of Cereus Financial Advisors, LLC, will be offering insight on several ways to give, explaining the benefits of each method. 

More than ever before, we recognize the need to invest in outdoor recreation. As our families, friends, and neighbors seek solace in nature, our staff and volunteers will keep working to ensure that you and your family have access to an abundance of exceptional parks and trails.

The “why” behind every gift to the Trail Conference is just as unique as the person donating to our mission. How they choose to support our efforts can be just as personalized.
