Membership

When you join Trailnet, you make a statement about what you value – a vibrant, connected community, where you and your family lead healthy, active lifestyles and can safely walk or bike to get around. 

Members help make that vision a reality by providing vital financial support for Trailnet’s advocacy, education, and planning. Every member takes us a step forward, toward building the safe, active, and well-connected communities we all desire. You can make a difference starting at $5 a month. See below for more about what awesome benefits come with being a Trailnet member!

Already a member? Share the fun! Ask your friends and family to become members. Refer your pedaling and pedestrian pals to become NEW Trailnet members, and we will recognize both of you with one additional opportunity each to ride for free at any regularly priced Trailnet BFC ride in the next year! If you are already a Trailnet member, go grab a friend and get pedaling or walking together for safer streets and connected communities! New members, be sure to tell us if a current member referred you using the “referred by” section on the membership form, and we will send both of you a ride voucher for the 2018 season.

Peloton Society members make gifts of $1,000 or more each year to sustain Trailnet’s vision and work in the community.

Peleton members receive all of the benefits of a Trailblazer membership level plus:

Membership Gifts

Gifts of publicly traded securities can be used as your membership donation. By gifting the stock to Trailnet (rather than selling it and donating the proceeds), you receive the federal and state charitable deductions and avoid paying capital gains tax. Both you and Trailnet benefit! 
For more information or to notify Trailnet of your intention to make a gift of stock, contact the Membership Manager.

Matching Gifts: Many employers offer matching gift programs to match charitable contributions made by their employees. If your employer has such a program, the impact of your gift to Trailnet may be doubled and your membership level and benefits can be upgraded.
 Check with your Human Resources Department to see if your company has a matching gift policy and follow the procedures for designating Trailnet as the matching gift recipient. Trailnet will notify you when the matching gift arrives.
