Associates Fund

Skyland Trail Associates contribute to our mission throughout the year through donations to the Associates Fund. Associates select an area of importance to fund each year. To date, funds raised have purchased a 15-passenger van, an EKG machine, network technology, and important campus improvements.

Associates Spring Luncheon

Supported by generous sponsors, the Associates Spring Luncheon offers mental health education and raises more than $80,000 annually.

Associates members volunteer to enhance client services and help make Skyland Trail a welcoming, home-away-from-home for our clients. Associates support Arts in the Garden each spring, assemble welcome bags for new clients, and decorate our campuses for the winter holidays.
