Trail Conference Supports NJ Highlands News

New York-New Jersey Trail Conference


The New York-New Jersey Trail Conference, a member of the Highlands Coalition, is supporting a fund drive by New Jersey Highlands News,  a 6-times-weekly digest of important Highlands-related material The news digest needs to raise at least $15,000 before July 1, 2012 to continue for the next year. The Trail Conference has contributed $500 to the drive and is spreading the word to other lovers of the Highlands.

The New Jersey Highlands News is in its sixth year of operation. Its mission: To provide an electronic outlet for distribution of news and information to educate the public about the Highlands – its water, and its natural, culture and historic resources – and increase awareness of important Highlands issues.

Between now and July 1, for every dollar you contribute, an anonymous donor will contribute 50-cents, up to a maximum of $5,000. That means a $30 contribution is worth $45; a $60 contribution is worth $90; and a $100 contribution is worth $150.

Just follow these four easy steps:

1) Go to the New Jersey Highlands Coalitions Gift Contribution web page at

2) Select an amount from the “radio buttons” under Gift Contribution: SINGLE PAYMENT, or choose “Other” by filling in an amount in the blank box.

3) Next, the most important step! In the “Memo” box, type in “New Jersey Highlands News” so that your contribution is dedicated to New Jersey Highlands News funding, and matched at 50-cents-on-the-dollar by our generous friend.

4) Finally, click “Donate” and you will be directed to a secure PayPal payment page, where you will need to fill out the appropriate information and make payment by Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover or your own PayPal account.

It’s that simple. And since the New Jersey Highlands Coalition is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, and will acknowledge your contribution upon receipt, your donation will be tax deductible.

If you prefer not to contribute via the online process, checks are also accepted. Make your check out to “NJ Highlands Coalition” and please write “NJ Highlands News” in the memo portion of the check.
