Starting a New Downed Bikers Association Chapter
We cannot prevent motorcycle accidents from occurring.
However, you can make a difference by being there through emotional and financial support.
Who We Are
Downed Bikers Association was founded on September 2, 1999, with the underlying goal to provide emotional and financial support through benefit parties and poker runs. Each Chapter has a Board of Directors, Bylaws, Articles of Organization, and a set of guidelines defining meetings, events, fund-raisers, etc.
Each chapter is responsible for its own fundraising with 100% of the money raised at each benefit going to the respective recipients.
Members receive a shirt, card, patch, and pin in return for their annual dues. Dues provide for operating expenses, such as; post office box rental, monthly phone bills, pins, patches, shirts, cards, website hosting, printing, mailing, etc.
