Raising $20,000 for Master Trail Plan Final Approval

Our Goal $20,000

April 2020 Fundraising

The Hawes Trail Alliance is in the process of raising $20,000 to fund the archeological studies needed to complete the Tonto National Forest approval process for the “Hawes Master Trail Plan” that will expand Trails, add parking, and improve the Hawes area for all users. 

This “Master” plan includes:

1. Adds over 26 miles of approved multi-use trails (essentially doubles the size of the current system)

2. Incorporates additional loops to help spread users around and alleviate congestion

3. Increased diversity of terrain to better address all skill levels of riders, hikers, runners, and walkers.

4. Designated, direct-access parking areas within the system to eliminate users need to cross highways or park in residential & commercial areas

5. Trailheads and signage throughout system to increase user safety and educate users on trail etiquette

6. Adding rollover gates!

Adding Signs For Directions

Trail Heads & Signs

Currently, we have no official trail heads or parking lots to use these trails. Our priority is to make safe and convenient entrances to Hawes Trails without disrupting HOA's, City Lawes, or the environment.

Protecting Nature

When planning trails the environment has to be considered and approved for all types of animals and creatures alike.

Want to Donate to a 501-c4 in Arizona?

You have come to the right place.

Luckily, we did some research and found out what a 501c4 is. Basically, a 501c is just a Tax code used by the IRS for a specific type of nonprofit organization. an organization must not be organized for profit and must be operated exclusively to promote social welfare. However, any contributions to 501(c)(4) organizations generally are not deductible as charitable contributions for federal income tax purposes. Lastly, your contributions may be deductible as trade or business expenses. As long as they are ordinary and necessary in the conduct of the taxpayer’s business. To end, please consult a tax professional if you want legit advice.
