BVSC is funded solely through donations from businesses & individuals, with our sponsors playing an integral role in allowing us to achieve our mission of creating, building, & maintaining multi-use trails in the Buena Vista area. Financial sponsorship also allows us to promote trail stewardship & responsible recreation, while protecting wildlife & our public lands through educational programs & volunteer opportunities.
Your donation helps BVSC build and maintain sustainable trails, but there is more to it than that! We work to increase environmental awareness through outdoor education in collaboration with the schools and the Buena Vista library. This includes stewardship, conservation and increasing access to climbing, fishing, and hunting while protecting wildlife habitats, historical sites, and agricultural lands.
We have a variety of financial sponsorship opportunities available, with the hope of meeting every business's needs & expectations. We truly value our local business partners, so please reach out with any ideas you may have of how we can work together to build our community!
1% partners add a 1% tax to customer purchases and remit to BVSC. (Customers can opt out if they want). BVSC provides the businesses with point-of- sale information to educate their customers about BVSC’s mission. The majority of our donations come through this program, with no cost the the business!
Customers are given the option of rounding up their total purchase amount to the next dollar at checkout. The proceeds raised through these purchases are then donated to BVSC, allowing businesses to support our mission by gathering donations from their customers, at no cost to the business!

Traditional financial sponsors make donation payments monthly, quarterly, bi-annually, or annually (whatever works best for your business!). These donations go a long way in helping BVSC achieve our mission. Whether it's hosting social events or planning and building trails, we couldn't do it without our sponsor businesses!
