Making the Dream Real sponsors are organizations and businesses that support the campaign at the following levels. We are deeply grateful to our sponsors for investing in the construction of the Ecusta Trail.
Become a Sponsor
As a Making the Dream Real sponsor, you will be supporting Friends of Ecusta Trail and Conserving Carolina’s shared mission to raise the needed funds to successfully construct the Ecusta Trail. Our vision is that the Ecusta Trail will be the premier greenway in the Southeast, connecting our communities, promoting health, and enriching the quality of life and the economy for everyone.
As a Making the Dream Real sponsor, you can show your customers that you support greenways and give back to your community. Below, you can learn more about the benefits of membership. Thank you for supporting the Ecusta Trail!

Charitable gifts from organizations and businesses that support the Ecusta Trail Campaign will receive benefits according to giving level.

Recognition and Naming Opportunities
All donors who give at least $5,000 will be recognized in a permanent recognition display at the two trailheads in Henderson and Transylvania counties. Other specific trailside naming opportunities (benches, kiosks, mileposts, etc.) will be also reserved for donors at certain giving levels on a first-come, first-serve basis. Giving levels and specific naming opportunities have not been designated yet and will not be determined until completion of the trail design which is estimated to be done by the end of 2022. Organizations interested in naming opportunities should make a gift or pledge as soon as possible. Campaign management will contact eligible donors with naming opportunities in order of gift and/or pledges received.
