The Elkhart County Community Foundation awards a grant for trail expansion

The Elkhart County Community Foundation (ECCF) has awarded the Friends of the Map of the trail gapPumpkinvine Nature Trail a two-year, $300,000 challenge grant to close the "gap" in the Pumpkinvine Nature Trail between County Road 33 and County Road 20. The “challenge” part of the grant means that the foundation will match funds that the Friends of the Pumpkinvine raise over the next two years dollar for dollar up to $300,000.

You can help “Close the gap” in the Pumpkinvine between County Road 33 and County Road 20 by making a generous donation online. The Friends are applying for grants for the match but will still need to raise at least $135,000 from local trail supporters to build this section of trail.

Net income from the Pumpkinvine Bike Ride will be matched dollar-for-dollar by the ECCF grant.
