VOLUNTEER & DONATE
Break Trail with Us by Volunteering Your Time, Treasures, or Talents!
It takes a community to accomplish all the trail projects the Knik Iditarod Trailblazers are working toward. People like yourself are the strength of the organization and we invite you to join us.
Become a Member - Several membership options are available. Join us and your membership fee will help fund trail improvements and maintenance.
Make a Financial Donation - Building a trail system that we can all enjoy and be proud of depends on being able to finance the improvements. No donation is too small to make a difference and all contributions are appreciated.
Volunteer Your Time and Expertise - We invite people to volunteer with us in a hands-on capacity since there’s always a need for volunteer talent to move trial initiatives forward. Opportunities are varied but here are a few to consider:
Introduce Us to Other Supporters and Sponsors - Social media has made it easier to make connections. Do you know people who might want to support Knik Iditarod Trailblazers in some way? If so, please help connect us to like-minded people, organizations, and potential sponsors. Our ability to enhance the trail system relies on donations, sponsorship funding, grants, and membership dues so thank you in advance for making these introductions.
Host a Trail Event for Another Organization You Support - Maybe you belong to an organization of fat tire bikers or cross country skiers. Why not connect those organizations to Knik Iditarod Trailblazers to discuss hosting an on-trail event or competition? The more, the merrier when it comes to promoting the Iditarod Trail, community, and the great outdoors.
Host Your Own Simple FUNdraiser with Trail-loving Friends and Family - Consider hosting your own creative fundraiser. Small or large, fancy or simple, gatherings you host with the people you know can raise funds to underwrite some of the trail improvement costs – and it’s always fun to gather people together! Want some ideas on how to host a FUNdraising gathering? Drop us an EMAIL and we will contact you.
Involve the Children Who Will Inherit the Trail - The trail we improve today becomes the trail that your children enjoy tomorrow. Sign your child up for a JUNIOR MEMBERSHIP or let them brainstorm ways they can make a difference in bettering the Iditarod Trail. One of our future goals is to create programs that help kids appreciate the Alaskan landscape and the opportunities it offers for recreation and relaxation.
Gather In-Kind Donations - Perhaps you don’t mind asking local retailers or people you know to donate items that the Knik Iditarod Trailblazers can use in raffles and contests or as prizes for an event. If that’s the case, contact us and we will get you set up with the materials you need to ask a business for a donation.
