What Are You Connecting 4?
The City of Fort Wayne and Fort Wayne Trails have identified 4 Priority Corridor Trail sections, one in each quadrant of Fort Wayne. Separately these projects are only about 6 miles long, but once completed, they will connect over 27 miles of trail corridors and make some of the most important connections our trail network has seen. Our partners at the City of Fort Wayne are putting nearly $8 million toward these four projects and recently received a nearly $2.7 million grant from the Next Level Trails program hosted by the Indiana Dept. of Natural Resources. But to close the funding gap so the City can start construction, Fort Wayne Trails must raise an additional $1 million in donations. Fort Wayne Trails has raised over $699,706.25 as of Late 2023 of that from generous community members and foundations. Now we are asking the public to help bring these projects to the finish line.
When you use the trails, what are you Connecting 4? Are you Connecting 4 your health? Maybe you are Connecting 4 some time with nature or shopping and dining? Whatever you are Connecting 4 on trails, please make a gift to our Connecting 4 Campaign today!
Your $100 contribution will connect us to $1000 in additional funds!
Without these funds, it could take ten years to complete these trails, but with your help, these trails can be completed in just three years!
