We Put the Fun in Fundraising!

Your Donation to FDRD will make a difference!


FDRD’s various fundraising events throughout the year benefit all of our programs and projects. Similar to donations and membership dues, the funds raised are unrestricted, therefore vital to our organization!

Volunteering for a FDRD fundraising event is just as valuable to us as time spent volunteering for trail and forest projects. If your trail maintenance days are behind you or you just are not that into digging dirt and carrying logs, these volunteer opportunities are much less physically demanding. Purchasing tickets and attending FDRD fundraising events is another great way to give back, especially if you do not have the time to volunteer.
