Frequently Asked Questions
Q: I would like to update my address or email address.
A: Please update your address here.
Q: I have not received the RTC magazine.
A: RTC’s magazine is published quarterly, with three paper issues and one green (digital issue) per year. If you are a new RTC member or have recently renewed your membership, it is possible that you have been left off the most recent magazine mailing list. Please check the RTC magazine archive and then use this form to let us know which magazine issues you have missed and we will have the missing issues mailed right out to you. If you would like to receive all RTC magazines issues digitally moving forward, please log in to your member center account and update your magazine preferences.
Q: I have not received the gift that was promised with my donation.
A: RTC’s typical delivery timeframe is 4-6 weeks from the date a contribution is made. RTC uses mainly the U.S. Postal Service to deliver donation thank you gifts. If your contribution was made more than six weeks ago and your thank you gift has not arrived, please fill out this form and provide your address and the gifts that you are expecting, including any size specifications.
Q: I recently contributed to RTC. Why am I receiving renewal notices?
A: Your recent gift was likely made in response to one of RTC’s special fundraising campaigns and did not automatically renew your membership. Support to these appeal campaigns are absolutely crucial to funding our trail programs. However, if you would like to apply your recent gift as your membership renewal, please just let us know by using this form and we’d be happy to update your account!
