Maine Trail Finder Donation

Has Maine Trail Finder been a helpful resource to you? Want to see more trails for other parts of the state? More website functionality? Help make Maine Trail Finder happen and remain a free resource for all. Please consider making a tax deductible contribution today!

What will donations be used for?

At this time, all donations to Maine Trail Finder will be managed by the site’s administrator, the Center for Community GIS, to accomplish the following two, near-term goals: 

  • Expand trails inventory, mapping, documentation, and verification activities in order to increase trail listings across the state; and
  • Refine, improve, and add website functionality so that Maine Trail Finder can more effectively deliver information about trails to users and trail managers. 

Who am I donating money to?

Maine Trail Finder donations are processed by the Quebec-Labrador Foundation/Atlantic Center for the Environment (QLF), the parent organization of the Center for Community GIS.

QLF is a federally registered non-profit organization whose mission is to support the rural communities and environment of eastern Canada and New England and to create models for stewardship of natural resources and cultural heritage that can be applied worldwide. Please visit QLF’s website to learn more about its work in Maine, the northeastern United States, Atlantic Canada, and farther afield.
