To qualify for assistance you must be a biker. Membership in a Motorcycle
Club, Riding Organization and/or Factory Sponsored Group is NOT a
requirement. There are no brand specifications; a riders sex, religion or ethnic
background has no bearing on qualification. In some cases immediate family
members may qualify for assistance. The situation must qualify as a true and
honest hardship. The Foundation does not detail what constitutes a ‘true
hardship’. Cases are reviewed individually and arbitrated based on the
information provided. Failure to provide information on the application will
only delay response/assistance.
The Foundation is controlled by a Board of Directors; consisting of nine voting members, a
Chairman and a Treasurer. When an assistance request form is submitted, along with a summary
letter describing the situation and verifying documentation, it is investigated by the Chairman
and voted on by The Board to grant the request or not. Based on the information they have, if
the request is granted, each Board Member states an amount they agree is appropriate. In some
cases The Board may ask for more details. This information may be necessary to determine the
degree of hardship, and is required under state law and The Foundation bylaws of Incorporation.
The Foundation guidelines are this: The Biker Fund is not a charity, insurance company, or hand-
out. The Foundation cannot eliminate all suffering, and is not an alternative to taking
responsibility for your own action or paying your own bills when you can.
