Grant General Guidelines
CIBike provides grants to benefit governmental and non-profit organizations that support bicycling in Ventura County and beyond.
CIBike has a long history of supporting a variety of bicycle-positive programs and projects, such as:
Grants are limited to $3,000 per organization unless the CIBike Board determines that the benefits of the request are substantial and warrant a greater contribution.
CIBike, as a 501(c)4 non-profit, can provide funds in support of bicycling to non-profit and governmental organizations. We cannot provide direct financial support to individuals or businesses.
CIBike co-sponsors the Cool Breeze Century Bike ride every August. We do not financially support other fund-raising bicycle events by other groups.
Grant applications are accepted at any time. However, funds are limited and applications early in the year are more likely to be successful.
Over $100,000 has been given to support cycling!
