For the fourth consecutive year, Park Tool is proud to announce they are accepting applications for the Park Tool Community Grant Tool Program which is designed to help local non-profit cycling organizations worldwide get the tools and repair products they need. The Park Tool Community Grant Program will provide ten non-profit cycling-based programs with a tool kit and two repair stands to help keep the bikes in their community running safely.
Each of the ten grant recipients will receive over $1,400 in Park Tool products including:
- 1 — Park Tool PK-3 Professional Mechanic Tool Kit
- 2 — Park Tool PCS-10 Portable Repair Stands
- 5 — Park Tool SA-1 Shop Aprons
New for 2019: One of the ten Community Tool Grant winners will also be granted the “President’s Choice” award. An additional $1000 to spend on more tools and repair equipment.
“It has been great to look back and see how our past Community Tool Grant winners have benefitted from the tools we’ve provided and all the people they’ve helped with properly working bicycles. We can’t wait to review the applications and pick the deserving winners. We’ve been blown away each year reading the stories and applications. There are so many well deserving organizations doing such wonderful work out there and we’re proud to be able to help in this way,” said Eric Hawkins, Park Tool’s president/owner and chief mechanic.
Applications for the grants will be accepted through December 31, 2018 at www.parktool.com/form/community-tool-grant-request. Winners will be announced in February 2019.
