Donate to Through the Trees
Youth Scholarship Fund: Through the Trees provides partial scholarships for our Youth Nature Immersion Program to families who need assistance. The TTT Youth Scholarship Fund allows more families and children to access and participate in our year-long and summer programs. We now annually serve over 300 children in Cumberland, Sagadahoc, Androscoggin and Knox counties. Currently one-third of our participants are receiving scholarship support, which equates to approximately $5,500 awarded per month.
Program Costs: Our goal is to hire and retain skilled, knowledgeable and passionate staff who love being outdoors in all weather with children, teens, adults and families. Many of our staff are trained as Registered Maine Guides with us, an additional expense. Our amazing team members work hard and paying our team a decent living wage is important to us. As the demand for nature programs for children and teens grows each year, we try to meet this demand by expanding programs and hiring new staff. Supplies for our programs include ATV maintenance, tarps, rope, art items, first aid items, saws and other tools, food, books and much more!
