Financial Support — Bicycling Grants
The Kalamazoo Bicycle Club periodically awards small grants to help fund bicycling-related projects in the community. If you or your organization are interested in requesting a grant, please read the conditions and instructions below, fill out the Grant Form and submit it to the KBC Grant Request Review Committee at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Kudos for Bicycling Friendly Deeds
So, do you appreciate something that an individual or organization has done for bicycling? Submit a “Kudos” to PedalPress and to the Awards Committee to express your appreciation!
KBC members are encouraged to give a shout out to an individual (non-KBC member) or organization that has promoted bicycling within the community. Submit your Kudos to the Newsletter Editor for possible inclusion in an upcoming Pedal Press and to the Awards Committee as a possible nominee for KBC’s Friend of Bicycling Award. Your Kudos should include the name of the individual/organization, what work was done, and how that work promotes bicycling within the community. When you submit your Kudos, indicate whether you would like to be acknowledged for the submission.
Because KBC has its own awards for members, Kudos submitted here are intended for organizations and individuals who do not belong to KBC.
Friend of Bicycling Award
The Kalamazoo Bicycle Club’s Friend of Bicycling Award will be voted on and awarded annually at the club’s December meeting to an individual or other entity who “significantly advanced the interests of bicycling.” Club members are not eligible as individuals, but an organization that a club member belongs to may be eligible. This paves the way for say, a journalist or philanthropist, a governmental unit, bike shop, or even another bicycling organization, to receive the recognition.
Nominations for KBC’s Friend of Bicycling Award are accepted from any KBC member. If you come across a particularly noteworthy individual or other entity you feel is worth nominating, please e-mail their name and contact information, with some reasons why you feel the nominee has significantly advanced the interests of bicycling, to the Awards Committee chair at the “Contact” link provided below. We will post reminders about submitting nominations throughout the year in the PedalPress.
