    Are there any non-profit trail advocacy groups in NM?

    We are encouraged through work to make donations to a non-profit. I usually contribute a minor amount to causes I like. I'm thinking this year, I'd like to send my donation to a NM trail advocacy group or some group that promotes mountain biking in NM.

    I'm social media adverse, and I'm a bit out of the loop. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Try this one...https://sfct.org/about/mission-vision/

    I know them and they are great people doing really good work.

    These people are also doing some excellent work. I am not certain of their tax status however. https://santafefattiresociety.org/

    The Santa Fe Fat Tire Society is a nonprofit 501 via our IMBA affiliation.

    The money we raise goes to a myriad of projects, with the big-ticket items consistently being the archeological surveys when building a new trail. A typical arc survey costs about $1,000/mile so it adds up quick. Likewise, tools and insurance for trail builders and club rides. Our fundraisers and club membership fees also helped keep Galisteo Basin Preserve Commonweal up and running, so the funds have a direct impact on riders in the area!

    We're also hoping to use some funds to start supporting more youth riders as well as host better events.

    If you want to learn more, you can check out the site above or of course shoot me a DM. We would love your support--there's some big projects on the horizon.

    It would be good to have the nonprofit 501 status on website in the section "about us." I knew of the IMBA affiliation, but didn't know their nonprofit status transferred to the Fat Tire Society. Good to know!

    Thank you!

    I'll do a little follow up research.

    Thanks for this, spreading a little love around the state seems like a good idea. At this point Gallup /Zuni is still bucket list for me. Maybe this will spur interest for me.
