The Tweetsie Trail is funded primarily through gifts and donations from businesses and individuals. Whether it’s volunteer hours or a financial donation, all gifts are welcome and much appreciated! 100% of your donation will go directly to the Trail. Following are specific sponsorship levels for immediate material needs.
Seven bridges or overpasses must be remodeled and surfaced, representing significant opportunities for sponsorship with naming rights. Bridge naming plaques will be available for donations ranging from $10,000 to $60,000. If interested, use the “Contact Us” form and indicate your interest with the check boxes.
Trail Surface Sponsorships
The trail surface will consist of compacted stone suitable for walking and bike riding. Businesses and organizations who donate $250 for material to be used for trail surfacing will receive recognition on trailhead signage plus a free ad in the News & Neighbor Newspaper, a $157 value.
Trail Benches and Trailhead Pavers
Additional sponsorship opportunities include 48 benches that will be placed every 1/8 mile along the trail. Each bench will have a plaque recognizing its donor, or designated honoree, for a donation of $300 each. Brick pavers at the Alabama Street trailhead and Sycamore Shoals area in Elizabethton are available for $100. Trail supporters who donate $50 – $99 will be recognized with their name listed on The Tweetsie Trail website.
These are all great ways to make a lasting mark, right from the start! Again, if you are interested in any of these opportunities, fill out our contact form and you will be contacted by a representative of the Tweetsie Trail Fundraising committee.
