Tracing the trail of the California Missions on horseback is ambitious … and expensive. Numerous people are volunteering generous time throughout Coastal California, but we still have significant costs for trail scouting, project management, insurance, basic equipment, trailering, PR help, permits and fees, not to mention this website!
All donations, large or small, will help, and are greatly appreciated!
We’ve linked up to a secure site to make donations easy. You may contribute any amount by visiting the Every Little Bit Counts area. Or choose from a variety of donation options with fantastic rewards: a personal thank you on our website from the rider you select, dinner on the trail with the team, a ride-along in a horse-drawn vehicle, co-producer credit on the film, and more.
The California Mission Ride team sincerely thanks you for considering a donation.
You may also send a donation check payable to The California Mission Ride:
The California Mission Ride; 511 Maple Street; Santa Cruz, CA. 95060 USA
A check for any amount is greatly appreciated by all members of the ride! Please include your email address with your check if you would like us to send you confirmation that your donation has been received.
