Help Support the Camino Association for the Holidays!

By December 4, 2017No Comments

El Camino Real de los Tejas National Historic Trail Association seeks to protect the historic integrity of the trail, to educate and engage the public about its significance, and to promote resource development, interpretation, and tourism along its path.
As a non-profit 501 (c)(3), our programs and projects for the trail are largely supported by donations from individuals and businesses. With your financial contribution we are able to run a host of programs such as our education program, Geographic Information Systems mapping program, resource protection program, and our signage program. Therefore, with the holidays in full-swing, we would like to share with you ways you can help to support the association!

1) AmazonSmile:
A good way to support the association, at no cost to you, is to do your online shopping at AmazonSmile. In doing so, you will have the same selection and price as traditional Amazon, but with the added benefit of 0.5% of your purchase going to the association at no additional cost. We also encourage you to share our AmazonSmile link with your family and friends, so that they can support the association while shopping too!


Much like AmazonSmile, will donate a percentage of your sale to our organization at no cost to you. The difference is that when you shop at, you will be able to shop with nearly 1,800 retailers who participate in the program and who donate to our cause at various rates! More so, with you can install an application on your web-browser that will place an umbrella-like icon on your browser, so that anytime you visit a website that participates in, you will be prompted to take advantage of the donation. It is an ingenious little tool that makes giving to the association extremely easy! Once again, please share this link with your family and friends so that they too can help support the organization.

3) Association Membership and Donations:

Finally, we encourage you to give the gift of membership or make a donation to the association for the holidays! There’s no easier way to share something with your family and friends that is so important to you, while encouraging them to become supporters themselves in the future! Plus, all memberships and donations are 100% tax-deductible!

We know you have a choice in what you support with your hard-earned money, so thank you for helping us to identify, develop, and protect the trail for future generations! Your National Historic Trail couldn’t be what it is without you!

Thank you for your support!
