The Catamount Trail Association (CTA) is a membership based organization. Unfortunately the CTA cannot survive on membership funds alone. Along with grants and corporate sponsorships, the CTA has two fund raising drives which help make up about 2/3 of the annual budget. The CTA is a 501 3c non-profit organization.
Annual Fund: These funds are used to help the general funding of the organization which include staff salaries, daily office expenses, newsletters, events and much more.
Trail Fund: These funds are used to help convey easements, construct bridges, reroutes off of the VAST trail and all other activites associated with trail protection and management.
