We want the Tour de Crème to be a good time that showcases land conservation and rail-trails here in Mattapoisett. It’s also an opportunity to raise funds for hiking and biking trails that benefit everyone in the area. This year, we’re requiring adult participants in the 24 and 40 mile rides to fundraise $25 and $50 respectively; but we hope you will see it as a challenge to raise more.
We are asking Tour de Crème participants to help us raise our $20,000 goal from family and friends. We have an online fundraising platform to make it easy, but we’re also happy to accept checks.
All net proceeds will be split between the event organizers: the Mattapoisett Land Trust and the Friends of the Mattapoisett Rail Trail. Learn more about our organizations and initiatives here.
Asking for donations can be easy if you follow our Fundraising Tips. As a thank you, everyone who raises at least $100 will receive a coupon for a free lobster roll at the after-ride party on the day of the event. If you don’t wish to ride, you can still come to the party and enjoy a free lobster roll for a donation of $100.
After you register, you will automatically be taken to an online fundraising page that you set up and use to collect online donations. There are required fundraising minimums for the 24 and 40 mile rides, but we think you’ll find it easy to raise more for trails and a bike path.
We accept checks too. Please have them made out to Mattapoisett Land Trust and bring them with you to the start.
Anyone can fundraise. You don’t have to ride to donate! We encourage our participants to share their fundraising links with friends and family. Again, this link will bring you to the fundraising homepage.
