Legacy Giving

Help the East Coast Greenway thrive well into the future by making a legacy gift in your will or estate plans. 

The East Coast Greenway is a sustainable solution for communities large and small. This collaborative effort has attracted more than $1 billion in public investment in its first 25 years. Creating a 3,000-mile protected biking and walking route represents a commitment to public health, environmental sustainability, economic development, and civic engagement. Together, we are connecting people to nature and communities via a safe, accessible Greenway.

Legacy Giving provides the East Coast Greenway with a strong base of future support. Please consider making a gift which will contribute to the long-term sustainability of the Greenway.

The East Coast Greenway Alliance can accept donations of cash and publicly traded securities. Please contact us if you are considering other types of legacy gifts. 

The Alliance does not provide tax or legal advice. We encourage donors to seek guidance from professional advisors to assist them in the process of making a legacy gift.

Honoring his daughter with the legacy of safer biking, walking

Out of a tragic night more than 25 years ago, the people of Yarmouth, Maine, worked to create the Beth Condon Pathway, a bike and pedestrian “pathway with a purpose.” A recent planned gift from the estate of Carl Condon has ensured that meaningful legacy will continue, and likely grow, for generations to come.
