WELCOME TO STELLENBOSCH TRAIL FUND
Stellenbosch Trail Fund
The Stellenbosch Trail Fund is a community organisation that maintains several of our town’s world class natural resources, including the upper reaches of the Eerste River and hiking, biking and running trails in and around Stellenbosch. Our stewardship is funded by both private and corporate donors and extends beyond the physical landscape, to the facilitation of skills development and creation of economic opportunities in outdoor recreation and tourism for our local communities.
You can donate directly into our account by completing the form attached and following the instructions to our payment portal. When you are on the trails, you can also use your Zapper app. For your small change, donations tins can be found at local bike and outdoor shops such as BMT, Ride-ln, Flandria, Masons, Outdoor Escape or Cave-man Cafe.
