Other Ways to Give:
Become a Sustaining Member
Support from generous donors like you is how we maintain and protect the Long Trail System. You can help for as little as $5 a month and have a big impact throughout the year. Become a sustaining member.
Become a Life Member, $1,000
Your membership will help provide financial stability today and for future generations. Life membership dues go directly into the club’s endowment fund.

Join Our Ridgeline Society, $1,000
Give an unrestricted gift of $1,000 or more annually and you will be included in the club’s Ridgeline Society. Ridgeline members receive copies of all new GMC publications and are invited to an annual hike and reception, hosted by the GMC president and executive director, where they get an inside look at current club projects and initiatives. Join today.
Sponsor the Long Trail Patrol for a Week, $5,000
Since 1930, the club’s seasonal professional trail crew, the Long Trail Patrol, has worked to repair and build trails, bridges, and shelters. The amount of public and private funds available each season determine how many crews we can employ, and for how long. By sponsoring a week of trail crew, you, or your business, can help us keep the trail in good shape. Sponsor the LTP. For more information, please contact us.
Endow a Section of Trail or a Shelter, $10,000-$20,000
These gifts are invested in our endowment fund and are a great giving opportunity for a donor looking to “leave their mark” on the trail in a more permanent way. They are also a nice way for an individual or group to memorialize a friend or family member. Endow a section of trail or a shelter. For more information, please contact us.

I know it takes a lot of support and hard work to maintain the Long Trail for all of us to enjoy. As a former caretaker, I am so thankful to current trail crews and caretakers for their work, and I want to see the GMC thrive into the future.
