RIDE-ALONGS CREATE, BUILD & STRENGTHEN RELATIONSHIPS

Participants and staff from Trips for Kids Marin recently participated in a Discovery Trail Ride with their partner, Salesforce.

Has your chapter participated in a ride along opportunity with a local sponsor or donor?

Inviting your sponsors and/or or key supporters to participate during one of your rides or workshops helps to connect them with your chapter by showing them first-hand how your program(s) impacts youth.

David Spaulding with Trips for Kids Mid-Columbia was so inspired by a ride he took with Trips for Kids Denver Metro TEN years ago, he started a chapter in his area.

Not every company or key donor may want to participate, but providing them with the opportunity shows them how proud you are of the good work you are doing in your community. You never know what their visit may lead to.

 

NEW DIRTRAG MAGAZINE TFK AD


Did you see our newest ad in the recent edition of Dirt Rag Magazine?
