Donations to IMBA support new places to ride and protect bike access. When you give, you join thousands of other riders, companies and foundations that support the sport they love. Below are two important ways to support IMBA and its 180 local chapters:
- Trail Fund: Donations to the Trail Fund support valuable trail building, master planning and key trail access initiatives nationwide. Last year, with hundreds of individual, corporate and foundation supporters, IMBA granted over $300,000 in grants and technical assistance to 32 projects in 17 states.
- Annual Fund: Your donations support IMBA's overall annual initiatives and events such as: conservation and advocacy, national and local access issues, land manager trainings, regional MTB summits, Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day and training for IMBA chapter volunteers.
