Give! 2020 is on now!

Medicine Wheel Trail Advocates is excited to be back in the 2020 IndyGive! Campaign with new rewards, greater matching funds AND special prizes for young donors.

Give! runs Nov 1- Dec 31 (update: Now on until Jan 3 2021!), and we’re excited to announce this year’s matching grant providers. Your donations to MWTA will be doubled by these generous business partners:

Who cares? You do! Just like us you care about trails and want to take care of them. You can help improve trails across our region, including existing trails like Stef’s, Codell, Lake Moraine, Chutes, Chamberlain….. and upcoming new trails, like Lions and Overlook in Red Rocks, master plan trails in Austin Bluffs and North Cheyenne Canyon, and trail reworks in Palmer Park, Bear Creek and more.

Rewards are back! Starting with your donation of only $25 ($10 or more for anyone under 17!) you will receive Give! rewards from local businesses, including food, drink, experiences and fashion. Yes you could be rewarded with a new necktie, yoga or dance classes, a float, free beer for a year, or falconry lessons! Check out all the rewards: the more you Give! the more you get.

Events and Collaborations: Please visit the MWTA calendar page for modified events like our Dec 1 Town Hall. This page will be updated as we confirm more events with fun twists that will keep our community safe. This year we have been invited to join a collaboration focused on northern El Paso County (with exclusive business incentives), and a fun challenge with other outdoor orgs called (un)Trash your Parks.
