CIBA Foundation Receives Gift from the
Central Indiana Bicycling Association 


On September 17, 2023, at the annual CIBA Picnic and Ride, CIBA President Renea Gates (pictured right) presented CIBA Foundation President Carole Terry (center) with a $50,000 Donation from the Central Indiana Bicycling Association. The donation will create additional opportunities for non-profit organizations to promote education for bike advocacy and safety programs within the Indiana region. (Also pictured is Tilden Mendelson, CIBA Foundation board member.) 

Since 1996, CIBA Foundation has awarded almost $600,000 to over 350 grant recipients. “The CIBA Foundation is excited for this generous gift from CIBA. There are many organizations across Indiana working on bicycle initiatives and programs that support the Foundation’s mission and this gift will allow us to help more of them,” said Carole.

CIBA President, Renea Gates stated, “CIBA is an Indiana bike organization that promotes bicycling for all ages and abilities with an emphasis on safety. Our numerous member volunteers who assisted with our two major community rides, the NITE ride and the Hilly Hundred, have helped us achieve this significant donation towards bicycle education for all."
