The Florida Greenways & Trails Foundation, Inc. exists to support the mission and programs of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection's Office of Greenways and Trails (OGT) as it continues toward establishing a statewide system of greenways and trails for recreation, conservation and alternative transportation.

Since state regulations do not permit direct gifts, bequests, grants, or endowments for any state program, the Foundation offers a much-needed, flexible source of funding. As a tax-exempt, 501(c) (3) organization, donations to the Florida Greenways & Trails Foundation, Inc., can be tax-deductible.

Supporting the efforts of OGT through the Foundation is an excellent way to Go Green.
