Membership Information & Benefits

The Maine Island Trail Association (MITA) is made up of thousands of caring members who have amazing adventures on the Maine Island Trail and support stewardship of Maine’s wild islands.


Membership Levels

MITA has three main membership levels:

*Available upon request – email info@mita.org regarding App access for more than one user

Membership is based on the calendar year. Memberships purchased after 9/1 will be extended through the following year.

If you would like to contribute above and beyond basic membership levels to support MITA’s ongoing stewardship work, donating at any amount above $65 includes benefits associated with a Family Membership.

Memberships account for just under a quarter of MITA’s overall revenue. We rely on dedicated supporters to help make up the difference.

Pursuant to federal law regulating tax deductions, your contribution to MITA, a 501(c)(3) organization, may qualify as a charitable deduction for federal income tax purposes.
