MARICOPA TRAIL AND PARK FOUNDATION

Phoenix, AZ   |  www.mctpf.org

Mission

The Maricopa Trail + Park Foundation is dedicated to protecting, promoting, developing and maintaining the Maricopa Trail and one of the nation's largest parks systems for current and future generations.

Notes from the nonprofit

The Foundation was started nearly a decade ago with an anonymous contribution from an individual who wanted to help preserve the Maricopa County Parks system and the Maricopa Trail. The Foundation is managed by the nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization's Board of Directors and is not a membership organization. The Foundation advocates to protect the natural heritage of the region; provides information and education; partners to provide important recreational facilities and amenities; and provides stewardship assistance through volunteer programs. The Foundation also serves as a partner with all of the Regional Parks "Friends Groups" who volunteer to assist their specific Regional Park's Nature Center, participate in fund raising activities, and provide volunteer leadership and volunteer park and trail maintenance activities.

Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Increase proceeds and reduce expenses for the organization's primary annual fundraising event in 2021. The Prickly Pedal Mountain Bike Race experienced 20% growth in the number of participants and spectators from year one to year five. Due to the COVID-19 guidelines, our Foundation was unable to conduct its premier annual fundraising event. The Foundation's other program is seeking $300,000 in federal grant Economic Development Administration funding to establish a 5-year effort to increase economic development in 27 partnership communities' tourism revenues, promote growth in existing and new businesses and job growth to help overcome the pandemic losses of our partnership communities by marketing the recreational benefits of the Maricopa Trail systems for their community residents' physical and mental health.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Greater growth in individual and corporate event sponsor donations and grants to support the increased marketing expenses of the organization's annual fundraising event and programs to help bring increased business, tourism and jobs back from the pandemic-created losses to the 27 community partners along the route of the Maricopa Trail.

Work toward attraction of local, state, regional, national and international event registrations that will bring more national event sponsors and expand awareness for the primary annual fundraising event.

Very strong support and the success realized in the development of new government grants, sponsorships and memorandums of agreements that were signed during the previous calendar year

Developed more than 80 partnerships with other organizations, government agencies, and user groups in the past two years, and the next steps will involve the expansion of the number of corporate and organizational sponsors for the annual fundraising event and the potential for increasing the primary annual fundraising event to multi-day events.
