Dig in to Save Forests, Parks, Trails, and Taxes!

Dig in with a tax deductable donation to CFPA

The avoidance of taxes is the only intellectual pursuit that still carries any reward.   John Maynard Keynes

by James Little

The Shenipsit Striders have been supporting CFPA and the Blue-Blazed Trails since 2005. At their annual gathering on Sunday, November 30, 2014, the Striders donated $3,000 to support CFPA’s mission to protect forests, parks and trails for future generations. Jim Little, CFPA’s Development Director, accepted the check on behalf of the Association. Since 2005, the club has donated over $11,000 to CFPA.
