TRAIL ACCELERATOR PROGRAM
Our Trail Accelerator Program (TAP) is focused on helping to build and extend nature and community trails for people to walk, run, bike, or roll on in Pierce County. We do this by coordinating public-private fundraising partnerships that help local governments, park districts, and other public land managers acquire essential matching funds to develop trails in our service area. We collaborate with "Community Boosters" to promote donation drives that enhance local agency trail development grant applications.
Land managers seeking TAP assistance with trail projects should contact us. We also offer other technical support and financial partnerships for trail planning and development!
ForeverGreen Trails actively seeks donations of matching funds for this program. Donors can specify whether their gift is to be restricted to a specific trail, a section of trail, or a jurisdiction, etc. We will work with you to ensure that your wishes are honored. Click the button below!

“The Trail Accelerator Program (TAP) is very valuable to local jurisdictions as it raises public awareness and support for projects which demonstrate to funding agencies the importance of the project. Public–private partnerships like the TAP bring support and funding to priority trails throughout Pierce County.”

“When our community needed support to leverage grant funding, ForeverGreen Trails stepped up to the plate and provided the critical infrastructure and organizing to get the job done fast. Thanks to ForeverGreen Trails, our community fundraiser unlocked state and federal grants totaling $1,000,000 for crucial active recreation and mobility improvements that will be felt in the Parkland/Spanaway area for years to come.”
