We are very pleased to announce that we have received a $4,000 grant from the Rugged Ridge Trails program.
I’d lake to take a moment and say thank you to them. Plans for these funds will be announced in the future. Also thanks to those of you that are members, the more members we have – the more we will be successful in obtaining these grants. So you’re $20 ends up having a “growing” effect.
Rugged Ridge Trail Access Program: Create, Maintain, Protect
The Rugged Ridge Trail Access Program was first announced at the 2013 SEMA Show in Las Vegas. Since then, it has awarded grants to a number of non-profit off-road organizations, including the Blue Ribbon Coalition; the Colorado Off-Highway Vehicle Coalition (COHVCO); the Colorado Association of 4WD Clubs; Friends of Uwharrie; New Mexico Off-Highway Vehicle Alliance; the Off-Road Business Association; Stay the Trail, and even Del Albright’s Volunteer Leader & Land Stewardship (VLLS) Course, among others.
The Rugged Ridge Trail Access Program was created to support the 4WD community by protecting public trail access. Donating grants of $5,000 per organization, the grants – which come as part of a larger philanthropic effort from Rugged Ridge’s parent company Omix-ADA – were designated for use toward education, stewardship, litigation, or any other activity advocating the conservation of public land and access to recreational trails.
