Fund established to support the MST
Friends of the Mountains to Sea Trail received its largest individual gift ever when an anonymous donor gave $100,000 to establish the MST Forever Fund.
The fund will support improvements to the physical trail. This includes bridges, boardwalks, land acquisition and easements, trailheads, campsites and wayfinding signs throughout the trail’s 1,175-mile route across North Carolina.
Friends plans to use about 15 percent of the gift per year and fundraise to replenish the fund as a continual, steady source for the MST.
