Please use the FORM BELOW to let us know you are interested and we will be happy to talk to you about how you can volunteer.   

HOW WE RAISE FUNDS
Friends of Granger Paths relies on grants and donations to fund all of our projects.  We must hit a specific dollar amount in order to break ground on the phase the community wants to build.  For example, Phase 1B and 1C (Adams Road from Elm to Gumwood) required us to raise $265,000.  The great news is with help from our donors and business sponsors we reached our goal and now Adams Road is complete from SR23 to Gumwood Road.

If you'd like to contribute you can contribute online below or participate on our "Buy a Brick" program.

 

TAX DEDUCTIBLE DONATIONS
Friends of Granger Paths is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization. Donations are tax deductible and can be made by check or through PayPal . ​

Mail your check to:
P.O. Box 306 Granger, IN 46530 

The Adams Road Path includes two beautiful trailheads with landscaping and benches as a meeting and resting location for residents using the paths.  You can purchase ENGRAVED BRICKS to be place at these community gathering places to honor someone special, celebrate a milestone, your business or show your organization's support of Friends of Granger Paths.  

We are also taking pre-orders for the new portion of the path which will also include trailheads.

Bricks start as low at $100 and go up to $1000.

BUSINESS SPONSORS
One of the goals of our Mission is to link the community to points of interest including businesses in Michiana.  We have been able to connect to Downtown Granger and Toscana Park/Heritage Square areas by building and advocating for more paths. We could not accomplish all we do without the support of our Business Sponsors. 

There are a number of ways to show your business's support.  Whether your organization is a 5K Sponsor, has a fundraiser for us, or would just like to donate, you will receive a high level of exposure and gratitude throughout our printed materials and social media.  

Friends of Granger Paths has been very fortunate to have support from local media outlets and we would be happy to share your support with them. 

Please contact us today and we can discuss ways to partner with you and continue to "Build Community"!  grangerpaths@gmail.com

 

 

THANK YOU DONORS!

We are very thankful to all of our donors and business sponsors that continue to help us reach our mission of connecting Michiana one path at a time. None of this would be possible without your support.

OUR VISION

Our vision is to bring about a non-motorized 21-mile system of safe,       multi-use paths in Granger that will link neighborhoods with the         library, schools, ball fields, churches, stores, and other points of interest in our community.
