Team Evergreen Cycling Announces 2019/2020 Grants
October 29, 2019
Colorado Cycling Organization Awards $300,000 to Local Nonprofits in 2019
EVERGREEN, CO (October 29th, 2019) — Team Evergreen Cycling (the largest cycling club in Colorado, est. in 1988) recently announced their grant winners for 2019/2020 on October 27th. $135,000 in donations will be split among 21 recipients for the upcoming season. Combined with earlier contributions for the year, this puts the total gifts given (year to date) at almost $300,000.
This year’s application process allowed Team Evergreen to consider a variety of charitable organizations (not necessarily related to cycling) in Jefferson, Clear Creek, Summit and Eagle Counties. Grants were to be considered based on the following categories:
- Advocacy Grants – Nonprofit advocacy organizations relating to cycling in the Colorado and Rocky Mountain Region.
- Community Grants – Nonprofit community based organizations in areas that host our events.
- Trail Projects – Funds for trail projects (hard or soft surface) including required cash matches for grant applications, signage and related equipment purchases.
Jen Barbour, Executive Director of Team Evergreen/Triple Bypass states, “Team Evergreen has been invested in our local communities and the state of Colorado since its beginning. As we’ve grown, so has our ability to make a positive impact. We expanded our grant considerations to further our reach.
We believe in supporting the advocacy organizations that continue to make a big impact in our state. Providing grant assistance and volunteers for organizations such as Bicycle Colorado and COMBA (Colorado Mountain Biking Association), were obvious choices. But we also wanted to give back to the communities that graciously host our events. As we found with this year’s grant applications, this can be done through a myriad of ways.
Whether it’s providing the Clear Creek EMS with new stretchers, or assisting with neighborhood rehabilitation projects, each Team Evergreen grant recipient is a worthy one.”
With continued success, Team Evergreen plans to continue the grant process again for 2020/2021. To find out more about Team Evergreen visit www.teamevergreen.org. For all press inquiries please contact, Katie Macarelli / Thorpe Marketing – [email protected]
