We make it super easy for Strava users (and users of most other GPS fitness devices synced with Strava) to support the trails they use by enabling fast, easy, and fun micro-donations.
Each time you upload an activity to Strava we’ll process it and check if it matches the jurisdiction of any participating organizations. If it does, we’ll send you an email asking if you’d like to complete your donation. You choose the amount to donate based on your cents/mile setting. You can change it anytime, or opt out of donation emails altogether. It’s up to you.
We’ll never make donations on your behalf without your explicit permission, so there’s no commitment when you sign up. You can even use this feature without a credit card: we’ll still tell you how many miles you completed on maintained trails.
All donations are to 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organizations*, and we’ll send you a receipt at the end of the month so you can keep track of your contributions. For step-by-step instructions on how to sign up for per-mile donations click here.

If you prefer to use any other GPS fitness device to record your ride, you can sync your data with Strava. See how to link your GPS device with a Strava account.
