For a Good Cause
HIKE for Mental Health is an all-volunteer, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
All contributions are tax deductible, and 100% of the hike donations support our mission.
Eighty cents of every dollar funds mental health programs, including break-through scientific research into PTSD, schizophrenia, bipolar spectrum disorders, depression and other major mental ilnesses. Through research we can find better ways to alleviate the suffering that affects 1 in 4 American families.
The remaining twenty cents maintains wilderness trails across the U.S. By supporting non-profit, volunteer groups that care for our trails, we help preserve wilderness experiences for generations to come. Where the money goes.
If you have any questions or ideas, please contact us.
We are glad to talk with you about your hike and how you can help HIKE for Mental Health.
We hope you will make HIKE for Mental Health a part of your hike.

Hello! I am the president of a state wide women’s hiking group in Tennessee. I am interested in setting up official hikes for our group, which has about 5000 members, to raise money for this cause. How does this work if I were to set up group hikes? Would I charge each person a fee to attend and then donate the money?
Our hikes are always free to join. Participants collect donations (if they wish) via our website. If you are interested in leading hike with us, here is a good place to start: https://www.hikeformentalhealth.org/volunteer-opportunities/lead/
