You can easily support the ECGA’s efforts to create the Greenway.

Become an ECGA Member

An increasing membership strengthens our voice as we call for trail development from Maine to Florida. For annual contributions of just $40 per individual or $60 per family, you can become a member of this visionary organization! Our national and state leaders need to see we have thousands of supporters for them to prioritize our "trail connecting cities." As a bonus, members receive discounts on events, merchandise and a free annual print newsletter.

Join the Close the Gaps Club!

Individuals or families donating $1,000 to the ECGA in a single year will gain membership to the Close the Gaps Club. Members will be permanently recognized on a plaque to be placed at a prominent location along the Greenway.

Make a contribution to the ECGA

This option allows you to make a straight contribution: no strings, no gifts in return, just funding that we need to develop the trail connecting cities.

Sponsor a mile of trail!

ECG mile sponsors have the option of having their names or short inscriptions posted on plaques along the trail in the state of their choice while providing needed operating funds to the Alliance.



The actual Greenway trail is funded via public funds, included federal transportation funds and local and state bonds. The East Coast Greenway Alliance doesn’t build or own trail: they are locally owned and managed. 

Alliance work is funded through contributions, membership dues, corporate sponsorships, grants, mile sponsorships, merchandise sales, event income, and more.  Alliance funds largely go toward staffing that supports advocacy, communication, promotion of the vision, and collaborative work.

For more information, please peruse our financial documents:

If you would like further information, please contact Dennis Markatos-Soriano, ECGA’s Executive Director.


The East Coast Greenway Alliance is a 501(c)(3) organization. Your contributions are tax-deductible.
