ORNDORFF LEGACY FUND
Thanks to a generous donor, each dollar donated to the Orndorff Legacy Fund will be matched dollar for dollar up to $10,000.00. The Orndorff Legacy Fund was established to enable "legacy" gifts to the STA that will be used to insure the future of the STA and the work the Association performs. Only the interest drawn on the principal can be used for programs, staff support, and other initiatives within the STA.
To make a monetary donation to the Sheltowee Forever - Legacy Fund select the appropriate level. If you would like to leave property or long term legacy gifts please talk with your financial adviser. The STA is a register 501(c)3 nonprofit. All gifts are tax-deductible.
GARY RUE ACCESS FUND
The Gary Rue Access and Development Fund was established by the Board of Directors to honor a fallen member of the STA, Gary Rue of Frankfort, Ky. Gary died tragically while hiking on the Trace. He was an avid support and believer in the work of the STA. You can honor him as well by making your tax deductible gift to this fund.

LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT FUND
"Leadership is the capacity to translate vision into reality." —Warren Bennis
The STA continues on the path toward the support of full time professional leadership. Each year, as the demands and opportunities increase, we work to increase our financial support to the leadership of the organization so they have the tools to meet the challenges just over the next horizon. With your tax deductible gift to the Leadership Development Fund, you are helping us insure the funds are there each year to support our staff.
Your tax-deductible donations to the STA will help insure that the Trace is open, accessible, and available for generations to come. Working with the land manager partners, the STA with donated resources builds stairs, bridges, shelters and other infrastructure that will bring increased awareness and use of the Trace.
