2014 Annual Fund

John R Atkinson

It’s hard to believe the end of another summer riding season is in sight. On behalf of all the chapters and VMBA, we hope you had a great time on Vermont’s amazing singletrack. The Association has made several important transitions this year. The administrative services provided chapters were expanded and now include nonprofit status, insurance, membership enrollment/management services, significantly expanded rider benefits to share, and the trail grant, which more than doubled from last year! These benefits and continued support affords chapters the opportunity to focus their energy on what they do best – build trails and provide you with awesome events all year long.

For individuals like you who love Vermont, VMBA’s annual fund is a great way to support initiatives like our trail building clinics, trail grants for chapters, the Vermont Mountain Bike Festival, and effective advocacy. All together, your contribution to VMBA’s efforts will help ensure Vermont’s mountain biking community continues to grow responsibly and that our state’s trails are the most inviting in the nation. And, your donation is tax deductible!

Your support is central to meaningful progress. If you act now, the farmers of the Cabot Co-op will match the first $500 of rider contributions and Rk Miles, Inc. of Middlebury is matching an additional $3000! We cannot do what we do without your support.

Please take a moment to consider how important riding is to your weekly routine, time with friends/family, fitness, and connection to your trails. What contribution best reflects how core riding is to your life?

Protect it. Get more. Ride on.

HUGE THANKS to our annual fund partners rkMILES and Cabot Co-op.
