By Dolly Craft, CIBA Foundation President
The CIBA Foundation’s 2018 Fundraising Campaign is now underway. We are hoping to raise $15,000 this year so that we can continue to provide funding for safe cycling projects. Since our inception in 1997, we have contributed over $450,000 toward some 300 plus projects.
While we continue to receive support from the Hilly Hundred and NITE rides, our grant requests continue to grow. Your donation will allow us to continue to fund viable requests that target bicycle safety.
Just this year, we have funded helmets distributed free to over 750 youth in central Indiana, provided bicycle lights to middle school students in the Fort Wayne area, helped to expand a bicycle trail near Richmond, supported a high school bicycle physical education effort and a trishaw for senior citizens, among many others. Check out details at our newly enhanced website www.cibafoundation.org.
While at our website, feel free to go to the Donate page to make a secure donation via Pay Pal. For mail-in donations, see the form in our Fundraising Brochure.
We need your support. I hope that you will place safe bicycling and the CIBA Foundation at the top of your list of contributions for this year. Thank you!
We provide support to trails across Indiana, such as the Covered Bridge Gateway Trail in Parke County.
