Motorcycle Riders Foundation Awareness &
Education (MRFA&E) was established to promote motorcycle
awareness and education due to an ever-increasing rider population
creating a greater need. Motorcycle riders and activists have
long recognized that motorcycle rider education and awareness
are crucial in enhancing rider safety. No one is more concerned
with rider safety than riders themselves, and obviously those
best suited to educate newer riders are veteran riders. In
addition, there are extremely successful and beneficial programs
already in place that are willing to share their expertise
and materials with others.
To achieve the mission of the MRFA&E, a database
has been created on the MRFA&E website (mrfae.org) that
includes the following:
1. Links to motorcycle
safety programs and rider education courses that are currently
offered and promoted around the country by State Motorcyclists’
Rights Organizations (SMROs) and other qualified organizations.
This listing assists new riders in quickly and easily finding
locations and information regarding local rider training programs.
2. Links to motorcycle
awareness audio and video materials shared by SMROs and
other knowledgeable organizations. Motorcycle awareness programs
include those that educate non-riders in interacting with
motorcyclists on the roadways.
Ways that you can you help the MRFA&E
through tax-deductible donations:
1. Contributions by Individuals,
Organizations, and Businesses.
We encourage you to contact your employer to determine if
they have a matching gifts program to help make your donation
go further. Many companies encourage employees to donate to
their favorite charities by matching their contributions,
sometimes dollar-for-dollar or more. Simply request a matching
gift form from your employer, and send it completed and signed
with your donation.
2. Contributions to the Young
Activitist Scholarship Fund.
MRFA&E has created a Young Activist Scholarship Fund (YASF).
It is no secret that there is an increased need to encourage
younger motorcyclists to get involved in motorcycle safety
and awareness programs. To that end, MRFA&E created the
YASF to recognize deserving and promising candidates between
the ages of 18 and 30 years old. Eligible candidates may receive
a scholarship to attend MRFA&E educational programs held
at the Motorcycle Riders Foundation’s annual Meeting
of the Minds conference.
3. Honor and Memorial Donations.
What better way to keep a motorcyclist’s memory alive
than to make a donation in his/her memory to promote motorcycle
safety and awareness?
4. Legacy Program.
The Legacy Program allows you to integrate your generosity
with your overall financial, tax and estate planning goals
to maximize benefits for both you and the MRFA&E. When
you make a future or planned gift to the MRFA&E, you really
are funding the future
of motorcycle safety and awareness.
Making Legacy Program donations can be as simple as naming
the MRFA&E as a full or partial beneficiary of an insurance
policy, will, estate or trust.
