How About Volunteering too?
The trail network in Springfield is expanding through the efforts of concerned citizens like you. Continued success depends on the enthusiasm, volunteerism and financial support of the community.
A strong public/private partnership is required to create greenways, so if you're not already an OG member, please become one by donating. It's tax-deductible and we're offering special $20 memberships in 2011!
Prefer to pay by check? Fill out our printable form and mail with your check.
"What do I get for my membership?"
Membership is the foundation of support for the trail system. Without people like you - donating as little as $30 a year - this great trail system wouldn't exist. Members help shape our community for current and future generations! Plus, you get the OG News three times a year to stay current on OG projects, programs, and receive special invitations.
Endowment Fund - with the Community Foundation of the Ozarks
With the future in mind, the Community Foundation of the Ozarks is managing an endowment fund for OG to secure the financial foundation of the organization. Various forms of tax-deductible gifts can be contributed including stocks, life insurance, appreciated assets, real property, charitable remainder trusts and cash. When planning your will or estate, please consider a gift to OG, to preserve greenway trails for future generations.
