Update: THANK YOU! We were able to raise almost four thousand dollars for Rockland! And work is already underway on the skills area in the Bike Park!
Ready... Set... Give! And Help Us Help Rockland!
This year, Central Connecticut NEMBA is participating in The Great Give® 2017, the premiere online giving event for nonprofits in the Greater New Haven region. For 36 hours, starting May 2, 2017, 8 a.m. and lasting until 8 p.m. May 3rd, your charitable donation will make us eligible for thousands of dollars in grant prizes when you give to us through giveGreater.org®.
And all contributions we receive during The Great Give® 2017 will benefit Rockland Preserve and their new Rockland Bike Park project! Rockland Bike Park will feature a pump track, skills area, and natural elements playground.
Central Connecticut NEMBA will be competing for various matching prizes, including most money raised, greatest number of individual donors, and greatest number of new donors. Your donation will go a long way in helping us grow mountain biking in Connecticut.
For the convenience of donors, gifts may be scheduled in advance for The Great Give® 2017 starting Monday, April 17. All advanced gifts will be credited during the second day of the giving event (May 3) at a time determined by The Community Foundation.
