Trick Or Treat, Smell Our Feet, Give us an Annual Support Campaign Treat!

Today is the final day of our Annual Support Campaign. We are so close to hitting our goal of raising $150,000 this month, but we still have about $7,000 to go. 

We rely on those who love and use the Katy Trail to take care of it. Tax dollars don't fund the Katy Trail - you do! GIVE BACK TODAY to keep it clean, safe and beautiful.

Your donation will help fund:
  • Off-duty police officers to patrol the trail
  • 3.5 miles of electric and water bills
  • Organic landscaping
  • Day to day maintenance for 20 acres of trail 
This is our LAST CALL for donations. If you haven't made your Annual Support Campaign gift already, today is the day to do it. 

Make sure the Katy Trail has a Happy Halloween and donate today!

Annual Support Campaign Kicks Off Today!

Dear Friends of the Katy Trail, 

Bring on the pumpkin lattes - October is here! And while you are busy planning for your fall festivities - we are gearing up to end our fundraising season with a bang. Each October, Friends of the Katy Trail conducts an Annual Support Campaign to make sure we don't only reach our fundraising goal for 2013, but that we surpass it to make the Katy Trail even better for you!

15,000 people use the Katy Trail each week and it is expensive to maintain. Your tax dollars don't go towards funding the Trail - that is why we rely on donations from all of you that love and use the trail. The Annual Support Campaign goal is to raise $150,000 this month. That may seem like a big number, but just think; if everyone who used the Katy Trail gave $10, we would reach our goal is one short week!

Even if you are already a donating member of Friends of the Katy Trail, please consider a little something extra this month. Every donation goes right back in to the Trail providing things like:

•Lights, we've got 3.5 miles of electricity bills to pay each month.
•And the same goes for water. Not just for you and your dog at the water fountains - the vegetation along the Trail needs to drink too.
•Off duty police officers to patrol the Trail, especially during peak hours and after dark.
•Organic landscaping for the 20+ acres of Trail.

Thank you for helping us keep the Katy Trail a clean, safe and beautiful transportational park! 

Happy Trails,
