RUBICON TRAIL: DONATIONS and DONORS

FOTR gladly accepts donations to the cause of keeping the Rubicon alive and well. FOTR is not an IRS recognized entity. We are an informal coalition of hundreds of folks and clubs, but we do need and accept donations and contributions.  If you'd like an explanation of how donations work, keep reading.

Donating to the efforts of FOTR through one of the following options is one of the best things you can do to help us keep the Rubicon Trail alive and well. Of course, showing up for our work parties if you can do that is always a welcome donation. ;) Sign up for work days here.

 

Donations to FOTR can come in one of several ways:

1. If you want to just help Del (me), the Trail Boss for the last 8 years, and my efforts for the Rubicon Trail through the BlueRibbon Coalition, you can donate to me (but I'm not a write off). I will use the funds to buy gas, pay expenses and continue my work above and beyond what BRC does to help me lead these access fights and issues.

2. You can donate to the BlueRibbon Coalition and ear mark your funds to support me, Del Albright, or to support any efforts towards saving the Rubicon Trail. Better yet, just a generic donation to BRC always helps our trails, all of them. This is a write off donation for you.

3. You can donate to the Rubicon Trail Foundation (the bank for FOTR) if you want a write off and a specific donation to the trail efforts. This Foundation directly supports the efforts of FOTR by buying food, supporting volunteers and hopefully someday buying land in and around the trail.

4. You can donate to another involved group/organization such as the Calif. Assoc. of 4Wheel Drive Clubs (www.cal4wheel.com)

No matter who you choose to support the efforts of the Friends of the Rubicon, these options will all work. Thank you. Del

If you want to donate to the El Dorado lawsuit situation,
please keep reading.


Eldorado National Forest Lawsuit (Rock Creek, Rubicon and other trails)

BLUERIBBON COALITION AND CAL4WHEEL (CA4WDC), ALONG WITH SOME OTHER GROUPS HAVE TEAMED UP TO FIGHT THE LAWSUIT FILED AGAINST THE ELDORADO NATIONAL FOREST (INCLUDING THE ROCK CREEK AND RUBICON TRAILS). WE NEED DONATIONS TO THE BLUE RIBBON LEGAL ACTION FUND TO FIGHT THIS. If you're a CA4WDC member and would like to contribute to their legal fund, you can do that too. BUT DO SOMETHING, NOW!

You can download and view the entire lawsuit and the web site of the Calif. Assoc. of 4Wheel Drive Clubs (home page) at www.cal4wheel.com.

Please send your lawsuit donation, no matter how small or large, to:

BlueRibbon Coalition Legal Action Fund, Attn: Eldorado Legal Action Fund, 4555 Burley Drive, Ste. A, Pocatello, ID 83202. Or to Cal4wheel.com for their lawsuit fund.

You can also send it to me and I'll forward it if you like. If you want to donate in some other way, please read on.

You can donate to Friends of the Rubicon directly, BUT.....

YOU CAN'T WRITE ME (DEL) OFF. FOTR AND DEL ARE NOT IRS EXEMPT, 501C.3 OR ANY THING LIKE THAT. IF YOU SEND ME MONEY IT'S BECAUSE YOU TRUST ME TO PUT IT TO GOOD USE in SAVING OUR TRAILS. Checks should be made out to Del Albright.
