REI Grant Helps Fund VBP - $10,000 grant due to REI employees
REI employees work, play and volunteer in their communities. Because of this close relationship with the community, REI asks their employees to nominate non-profit organizations for REI grants. The Valmont Bike Park was nominated by the REI Boulder Store and we applied for funding this spring.
We are pleased to report that our grant request was approved and recently funded. Valmont Bike Park received $10,000 from REI to support trail construction and also ongoing maintenance. Some of these funds will be used for the purchase of hand tools and equipment that will be stored on-site and used by volunteers.
REI has been a long-time supporter of outdoor recreation and BMA. In fact, the 'REI Gives' Program has even provided a major grant for BMA's Volunteer Trail Work Program. Thanks REI for your support!
