Workplace Giving: Turn 9-5 Into Support for Trails

Posted by Loren Drummond at Oct 29, 2012 10:39 AM |
When you donate through an employer workplace giving program, like the ones at Microsoft, Boeing or any local, state or federal government office, it's kind of like you're in two places at once: in a meeting and on a mountain, typing an email and taking care of your favorite trail. When you give at work, you can feel good knowing that every moment you spend sitting at your desk is ultimately helping protect the wilderness you love.

Did you know your workplace giving program can power our work on trails?

Washington Trails Association will use your workplace gift where it is needed most: on your favorite trail, in Olympia or in Washington, D.C., or to power hiking resources like wta.org. Workplace donations enable WTA to spend less time fundraising and more time building, maintaining and protecting hiking trails—and provide nearly 10 percent of WTA's annual operating support.

Diablo Lake Trail (Apr 17)

Diablo Lake

North Cascades

Follow the Diablo Lake Trail up and across talus slopes on the flanks of Sourdough Mountain to impressive cascading waterfalls and stunning views. This hike in the North Cascades Institute's backyard makes a great option for an early season hike in stunning North Cascades National Park, much of which is inaccessible during the winter and spring.
