Club Ride’s 2019 Impact Grant
2019 Impact Grant
We’re proud to announce our first annual Impact Grant for 2019! We love to support trails so this spring we are giving one lucky trail group the ability to get $2,500 for a supported project.
Working with our own trail coalition over the years has highlighted the need to extend our advocacy for singletrack to another trail organization. Our 2019 Impact Grant is designed to help a trail group in need of funding transform innovative ideas into successful opportunities for their community by awarding them $2,500 toward their project.
Pillars of The Impact Grant
Supporting your Local Community: Trail systems should benefit and link the local community with the biking community. Local communities see the value in trail systems and vice versa.
· How will this grant help your local community?
Quality of Life: Trails are all about improving quality of life for its respective community.
· How does this project help improve the quality of life of your community?
Youth Engagement, Volunteerism: Bringing youth and volunteer organizations into your trail project is vital. Any association with NICA (National Interscholastic Cycling Association) or other volunteer groups in your community is a plus.
· How will your project involve the local youth and/or volunteers?

THERE ARE SO MANY WAYS TO GET MOUNTAIN BIKE ACTION
