Peace Rivers Riders Inc (PRR Inc) was established in 2009 and is dedicated to the encouragement of all aspects of bicycling. The mission of the organization is to sponsor and support recreational cycling activities; to encourage bicycling as a leisure activity, as a beneficial form of exercise, as a method of transportation, as a sport; and to promote equal road rights and smart bicycling practices. PRR Inc is an active member of our communities with bicycling as the backdrop for this activism. PRR Inc is an all volunteer association.
Every year, a portion of each registration fee for PRR Inc's Wheels and Wings Ride is put aside for our Grant Program. The amount available for grants each year will be determined after the event approximately the end of September.
Purpose: PRR Inc has created the Grant Program as a vehicle to best award financial grants to those organizations whose programs best fulfill the PRR Inc's mission. Proposals will also be evaluated on the vision, goals and needs of the applying organization.
GUIDELINES: PRR Inc welcomes projects of all types that contribute to the PRR Inc mission listed above.
While any organization may submit a grant request, the project must be focused and completed within Charlotte County, Florida.
Most projects are expected to run for a single year. If projects will be multi-year, please explain why in your proposal.
A new Grant application must be submitted each year, unless previously designated and approved as a multi year project.

Please do not spend energy explaining the benefits of cycling, you are preaching to the choir.
