Supporting the Trail Community
Hostels and Service Providers
As the SAWC and the One Percent Club travels up and down the Appalachian Trail, I will provide assistance to hostels and service providers as much as possible. This will include modest financial assistance, equipment and manpower support, and all other assistance that I can provide to all service providers on the Appalachian Trail. Each year, one deserving service provider will receive a $250.00 cash contribution based upon their service to the Appalachian Trail community.
Trail Club and Organizational Support
SAWC and the One Percent Club will support and work with Trail Clubs and Organizations on the Appalachian Trail with annual paid membership fees, as well as promoting these organizations while on the AT, and on social media.
The One Percent Club College Grant Program
The One Percent Club will award an annual monetary grant to a qualified Collegiate Outdoor Program that has demonstrated a keen desire to promote outdoor volunteerism on the Appalachian Trail. If your college trail club would like to compete for funding provided by the One Percent Club, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more details and further eligibility requirements.
1%'er Give Aways
As the One Percent Club engages hikers and potential outdoor volunteers on the Appalachian Trail, there will be periodic gear and merchandise give away opportunities. Follow all the One Percent Club social media platforms for where I am on the trail, and how you can receive our monthly give away.
