Help Castlemaine to Marybourgh Rail Trail make history

The Castlemaine to Marbourgh Rail Trail (CMRT) committee is encouraging local communities and supporters of rail trails to donate and make history, in just four short weeks.

What’s at stake is a rare and exciting opportunity to attract up to $100,000 in Victorian Government tourism funding to get this 55km trail started.

To achieve that, the committee first needs to raise $12,000, with every one dollar donated by the community in February 2022 will help the group attract up to $4 in State Government funds. 

That means a single donation as small as $20 could attract up to $80 from Spring Street,” Des Boucher, CMRT Treasurer and fundraising lead, explained. “And if fewer than 25 generous people or local organisations each pledged $500 we could attract up to another $48,000 in government funding,” Des said. 

CMRT plans to hit its four-week, $12,000 fundraising target via two side-by-side campaigns:

1. Foundation Donors for donations of $500+ to find out more download an information brochure here

2. Online Donors for donations of $20+ from the wider community click here to donate

Both kind of donations will receive public recognition. More information can be found via this link.
