About the Friends of Northampton
Trails and Greenways
FNTG is the lead, local organization in pulling together this event. Since our founding in 2006, FNTG has raised more than $55,000 to help support trail acquisition, design, construction, and improvements in Northampton and surrounding communities. Whether you use the rail trails for commuting to work or school, or use them to navigate your way through town, we need your support. Trails and greenways provide recreation and transportation opportunities for area residents and tourists.
How do your contributions help in furthering these and other future projects? They are especially valuable in supporting the engineering design work that needs to be done before submitting formal applications for grants. Also, as it is difficult to determine the precise cost of a project in advance, having a small amount of unrestricted funds available to cover overruns makes it possible to spend every penny of the grants received.
All new donors will automatically become Members of FNTG, and will receive our newsletter, invitations to special events, and bulletins about new developments along the trail, AND a copy of the map and brochure “Exploring the Rail Trails of Northampton and Easthampton”.
