Celebrating 25 Years
At VMBA, we strive to direct the vast majority – typically 90% or more – of membership revenue to our Chapters, both in direct support for their projects & operations and in backend administrative support & services. The additional resources necessary to run our central office operations and staff comes from fundraisers, sponsorships, and grants. As a non-profit, one of the most important efforts to keep the office running smoothly – and membership dollars going directly towards the trails we all love – is through individual donations.
This year is especially important because we are celebrating our 25th Anniversary! Thanks to our community, Chapters, and Partners, VMBA has evolved and grown tremendously and achieved some incredible milestones these past 25 years. You can learn more about our progress and evolution on our 25th Anniversary page.
We are proud of the organization we have all helped create, much of which was made possible thanks to the generosity of individual donors, and look forward to what the future holds for outdoor recreation in Vermont.
What does your donation help support?
- All our efforts to protect, assist, and show our appreciation to private landowners, who host over 70% of Vermont’s mountain bike trails
- Our campaigns to help educate trail users, both new and experienced, on how to be good stewards of our trail systems
- Our engagement with the outdoor-minded business community to elevate the value of volunteerism and support the recreational assets that help make Vermont a wonderful place to run a business
