2015 has launched with an exciting start for the Coalition! Three foundations have awarded us grants totally $60,000 for key connectors, trail amenities & signage, and a new awareness campaign to help promote WMTGC & the incredible West Michigan Regional Trail Network.

A very special THANK YOU goes out to the following supporters:

Dyer-Ives Foundation- $25,000 to help support an awareness campaign with Rapid Growth Media (RGM). For two years, WMTGC and RGM will be highlighting various trails and the folks who helped them come to life. To follow these stories please visit

Consumers Energy Foundation- $20,000 to be used on one of the key connector projects our board has identified to help close the gaps in the West Michigan Regional Trail Network.

DTE Energy Foundation- $15,000 to also be used on a key connector project. These key connectors will one day allow seamless travel along the many Fred Meijer trails across our state.

We are humbled by the generosity of our partners and encourage our trail users to learn more about these organizations.
