Help Raise Money to Support Montour Trail!
Our Premier Fundraising Event, with More Ways to Participate
For this year’s event, we’ve added “peer-to-peer fundraising,” an online tool in which teams and individuals promote Gateway Engineers Tour the Montour donations to their own social networks, in an extremely convenient way. The idea is to help Tour participants and volunteers expand their impact and create a larger benefit to the Trail!
We invite you to promote the campaign to your own network of friends, family, and coworkers in support of the Montour Trail. You can even join with others on a team to increase your impact.
It’s easy to become a Gateway Engineers Tour the Montour Fundraising Champion!
You can learn more about why the Montour Trail Council needs donations here.
We offer great incentives to those who volunteer as peer-to-peer fundraisers.

There are a lot of ways to plan your campaign. An internet search of “ways to raise money for a charity from friends & family” may give you some ideas, such as:
- Dollars donated per mile that you ride in preparation for the Tour
- Dollars donated per mile ridden during the Tour
- Parties or gatherings you host to raise money
- Baked goods or a handcraft in return for a donation
- Neighborhood yard sale
- Cell phone message changed to include your “cause”
- Money jars at restaurants in high-traffic areas
- Ask your coworkers, and maybe make it a competition
