The Friends of the Greenway, Inc. (FROGS), a 501(c)3 corporation, is passionate about the Greenway, running thru Macon County and along the river. It is an asset to both the County and the Town. As we all know, it’s a beautiful area in need of preserving for years to come.
What is needed to sustain our organization in it’s pursuit of a vibrant Greenway? It is the willingness of individuals and local businesses to support us.
We receive no direct funding from the County or Town, although at times they help with bigger projects that cannot be accomplished by our group of volunteers. We have restored and now maintain the Butterfly Garden, procured donations for new signage along the trail, and partnered with the Franklin Bird Club in adding and maintaining birdhouses along the Greenway. To keep our doors open and to keep these and new projects moving forward, we need your help.
There are several levels of support and several events to choose from this year. Please review the options on the attached chart. Selecting the maximum amount will allow FROG to recognize you at every event planned during the year and to utilize your support in areas of greatest need. A donation form is also provided for your convenience.
Our major project for the year will involve establishing a native and pollinator garden at FROG Quarters. funds raised from our events and sponsor support will assist with this project.
As you can see, our future sights of bringing more people to the Greenway to enjoy our lovely area is beginning to take shape. All we need is your support to make things happen.
Won’t you be a part of our quest?
