Every "bit" helps!

Generous support from the local community enables us to provide this important service to residents in the Charlottesville area.  Rider fees offset a small portion of our operating expenses each year, and we strive to provide instruction for students who are unable to pay.  Any gift, no matter the size, will have a lasting impact on our riders and families.  Donations are vital to our success, and your support is greatly appreciated!

If you are interested in donating services or equipment, please contact us first.
