~Application~
                          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.
