Leaders on a May Training trip, hiking the Appalachian Trail

Why Donate? 

We want every freshman who wants to do FOOT to be able to do so! Donations ensure that we can give financial aid to all foot participants who qualify for it. They also allow us loan for free equipment to freshmen who may not own their own packs or sleeping pads. 

Whether you are a FOOT alumni or parent of a leader or Footie, we are very grateful for your support! Thank you for helping us make FOOT as inclusive and equal of an experience for all incoming freshmen as possible. We really appreciate it.
