It's the Season to Give

The holidays are coming fast, as is the end of the year. It’s a great time to get into the spirit of the season and make a year-end donation to the Friends of the Katy Trail.

You love the Katy Trail. Whether you were out there this morning, or will be today after work or this weekend, you look forward to getting on the Trail. But the Trail you love needs your help too.

It's a common misconception that your tax dollars are what make the Katy Trail your urban oasis. While the City of Dallas owns the Trail, it’s up to the people who use and enjoy it to sustain it through their donations The truth is the things that you and so many other Trail users love, are possible, not because of public tax dollars, but thanks to private donations to the Friends of the Katy Trail.

• Do you use the Trail when the lights are on?
• Do you stop to get water at the drinking fountains?
• Do you enjoy seeing the landscaping?
• Do you feel safer knowing the police are patroling the Katy Trail?

If you answered yes to any of those questions, you benefit from what the Friends of the Katy Trail pays for. All those things, and much more, are possible thanks to donations made to the Friends of the Katy Trail.

Your donation is an investment in your city, the environment, and the health of the community. Friends of the Katy Trail makes sure the Trail is clean, safe and beautiful for you and and all Trail users. Please make your gift today.

Please give a year-end gift now by going here. And remember, donations are tax deductible. If you have any questions, please contact Ashleigh Falk at

Thank you for your continued support of the Katy Trail. We hope to see you on the Trail.
