There are many ways your business can become a Round-Up for the Greenway Partner
Ask your customers to Round the total purchase price up to the nearest dollar
Ask customers to contribute one dollar of each sale (some business owners then match what their customers give)

Other ideas for your participation include:

Host a special event with a portion of proceeds donated to the Greenway
Make a donation in honor of your business
Add a $1 processing fee to online ticket sales
Add a $1 to a nights stay (for Hotels and Inns)
We have flyers, handouts, and posters with stands that can be delivered to your establishment to be put on counters and walls to help your customers learn about the Middle Fork Greenway! We can also provide your staff a brief training about what the Middle Fork Greenway is and how our community will benefit from it's completion.
