Elizabeth Levers, a long time supporter of hiking trails, liked to encourage young people to participate in trail projects. Started by a generous gift of her relatives and increased by other gifts to the fund, it currently should be able to support about $1000 of grants each year. It helps finance projects so that youth can learn about hiking trails and volunteering.
Applicants are reminded that this is a matching grant program. Applicant must document that efforts have been made to secure additional funds to partially match the amount requested. These can be the value of donated materials or professional services.
Additional gifts to the fund are welcome.
