Why Should I Become a Member?
- Recently, we concluded a major settlement with one landowner, and DCNR awarded 50% of the purchase price of the Hunt Bros. property next to the Foxburg Bridge. We now have a full mile of bike trail we can develop, plus 1.5 acres for a community park by the bridge. All we need is money to set things in motion.
- DCNR and other funders want us to show community support, thus by becoming a member, you show you care about this trail, and you want funders to financially support its construction.
- ARTinCC needs your financial support to the extent you have the resources to help us, so that we can pay customary expenses, such as liability insurance premiums, accumulate cash to meet the match requirements of grant applications, and purchase materials to build and repair the trail.
- The bike trail will be a free asset for the public, and if you join and contribute, you can claim part ownership of this amazing project.
How do I Become a Member?
- Fill out the membership form and send it with a check (in whatever amount and membership level you feel is meaningful to you), to ARTinCC, P.O. Box 325, Foxburg, PA 16036. We will notify you of events, and major developments.
- In future years, you are under no obligation to continue giving either at the same, less, or a higher level – it’s completely up to you. Each gift will be acknowledged in writing by ARTinCC, regardless of whether you ask that the gift remain anonymous to others.
Why should I donate Beyond a Basic $25 Membership Level?
- If you really care about something, you should give at a level that represents your desire that your money is well spent and helps accomplish your goals. ARTinCC definitely needs your help be it large or small, and both our accomplishments and expenditures will be open to review by members.
- We are making a full budget with engineers examining and pricing out the challenges we will face to build the trail. The 3 miles between Emlenton to Foxburg easily could cost $100,000 to >$200,000 per mile to fully build, thus if our match is ½ of that amount, you can see that we must raise substantial sums of money.
