I'd like to honor Kate Dixon with a gift for the MST!

Kate has led Friends of the MST for 15 years. The trail and Friends have grown so much while she’s been our leader. Kate has announced her retirement in April 2022 and the Kate Dixon Legacy Campaign is a way to honor her by helping Friends continue her great work for the MST.

Donor Information


There are many ways to give:

To donate by check, mail to Friends of the MST, 3509 Haworth Drive, Suite 210, Raleigh, NC 27609.

To make a multi-year pledge to the Kate Dixon Legacy Fund, please contact Elizabeth Hipps for more details. ehipps@mountainstoseatrail.org 919-825-0297 ext 4.

Gifts of appreciated securities (stocks) are a great way to make a gift, minimize capital gains and receive a tax deduction for the fair market value of your gift at the time of transfer. Contact Elizabeth Hipps for the information your broker will need to facilitate the transfer.


Many employers match donations given to charitable organizations, a fantastic way to double your giving. Each employer is different - some may have a form to send us or others have an online portal. Reach out to us, and we’ll help you navigate this.


Your gift is tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law.


Although the MST is an official state trail, North Carolina does not fund our work except for occasional grants for tools, chainsaw safety training, and bridge construction. Gifts from individuals are our most important source of funding. All gifts are welcome and appreciated.
