About the Grant Program

Filmed by Bike movie events are an excellent way to raise funds for an organization, to raise awareness about projects and causes and to build your bike community. We know that the first year of crafting an event is the most challenging, and it gets much easier the second and third years. That’s why we offer a grant program to help groups get started the first year – we want to set you up for success well into the future!

By year two it will be easier, and year three it will be smooth sailing for you. You fans and supports will look forward to the big Filmed by Bike event every year and it could be your major annual fundraiser.

What an engaging and creative way to raise project funds!
