Redbank Valley Trails Association is holding our annual December Challenge fund drive now through December 31, 2017. Please see the flyer for more information. The only administrative fee is through PayPal so most of your donation is put to use to improve and maintain the trail. Please watch Facebook for our progress toward meeting our goal of $7500.00. 2017 RVTA Dec Fundraising Challenge
We will also be participating in the second annual Redbank Valley Day of Giving on May 10, 2018. Please see below or the brochure at RVTA Day of Giving Brochure 2017 for more details and giving opportunities to help us reach or exceed our goal. Donations are tax deductible to the full extent of the law. Match Fund donors are being sought now for the 2018 Day of Giving in conjunction with 10 other area charitable organizations.
Looking for a unique gift? How about naming a shelter ($7500), a small bridge ($5000), bench ($250 or $500), or picnic table ($600) in honor or memory of a special someone? Would the hard-to-buy-for person who has everything appreciate an annual or lifetime trail membership? Trail memberships qualify for any matching donation.
Donations can be made on or before December 31st for the December challenge (or midnight on the Day of the Giving) on this website via PayPal or by mailing or delivering a check to RVTA at Northwest Savings Bank, 301 Broad Street, New Bethlehem, PA 16242. For the Day of Giving, checks can also be delivered on or before the Day of Giving to First Commonwealth Savings Bank at 223 Main Street in Brookville, PA 15825. If using PayPal please consider adding 2.2% plus $.30 to your intended donation to cover the PayPal fee.
For your convenience, donations can also be delivered on or before the Day of Giving to other donation locations participating in the new Redbank Valley Day of Giving: Redbank Valley Community Center, Redbank Valley Public Library or Rest Assured in New Bethlehem by their closing hours or to First Commonwealth Bank in Brookville by 5 PM. Every donation is appreciated!
As we continue to improve the trail our needs remain great: we need to refresh crushed limestone on several miles of the main trail, add 8 miles of crushed limestone on the Sligo Spur after grubbing, grading and drainage work. We need fuel for equipment and materials and the need for maintenance equipment and fuel is constant. For more information, please see the flyer on the Sligo Spur improvement project. Sligo Spur Improvements
We also have established a fund for ongoing maintenance and emergency repairs as well as a long term maintenance fund.
RVTA is a qualified 501(c)(3) charitable organization with the Internal Revenue Service. Your contribution is tax deductible to the full extent the law allows. Any contribution is greatly appreciated. Material, equipment donations and services are also gratefully accepted along with historical information of sites along the trail. We’d like to add more historic markers. Monetary donations may be sent to Redbank Valley Trails Association, c/o 301 Broad St., New Bethlehem, PA 16242 or via PayPal. RVTA participates in the Redbank Valley Day of Giving each year in May.
