Ways to Give

Give back to one of the finest trails in the country

Discover the many ways you can help ensure the integrity of the Superior Hiking Trail now and for years to come.

Make a monthly donation, become a member of SHTA, honor or memorialize a loved one, give by payroll deduction or leave a legacy by including SHTA in your will — all of these are great ways you can make a big impact for the Trail today.




Here are a few more ways you can make a gift to ensure the Trail remains the gem of the North Shore:

  • Work Place Giving and Employer-matched Gifts: Does your employer offer payroll deductions to charities? Will they match a charitable gift or volunteer hours? Take advantage of work-place giving and matching gift programs to make the most of your support for the Trail.
  • Business Memberships: Show your supporters that you stand with the Trail by joining as a business member today.
  • Gift Memberships: Share the gift of membership with your loved ones. They’ll receive all the benefits of membership, and you’ll be known as a Superior gift giver.

  • Amazon Smile: When you shop online at Amazon.com, follow this link — a portion of proceeds will be donated to SHTA at no additional cost to you.
  • Give To The Max Day (GTMD): GTMD is an annual philanthropic holiday celebrated across the state of Minnesota, and a perfect way to join hundreds of other SHT enthusiasts in giving back to the Trail. In 2021, GTMD is on November 18 and features opportunities to help SHTA win major funding prizes. You can help us win additional support for the Trail by scheduling your Give to the Max Day gift today.
