Supporting Trails Through Donor-Advised Funds


Philanthropy makes Michael Sasse feel as if he’s doing his part to protect New York. He supports the causes he cares about through donor-advised funds.

When Michael moved from Germany to New York City, one of the main forces that got him back outside and connecting with nature was the Trail Conference. Michael says, “the Trail Conference can maximize donations by taking a little bit of donated money and get really good results.” Through a community approach, the Trail Conference matches donations by mobilizing volunteers of all ages.

A small donation can have a large and lasting impact in ensuring the trails and natural areas we share are sustainable and accessible for generations to come. It’s possible for the average person to create an endowment to support their favorite causes and nonprofits.
