Park opens applications for Community Tool Grants

Published November 1, 2021

ST. PAUL, Minn. (BRAIN) — The application period opened Monday for Park Tool 2022 Community Tool Grants. The period remains open until Dec. 31.  

Now in its seventh year, the Park Tool Community Tool Grant has so far donated over $90,000 worth of tools to organizations throughout the world.

Park Tool will award grants consisting of bicycle tools and repair stands to ten nonprofit organizations or community groups, to help them continue to make a difference in their community. Each of the ten grant recipients will receive over $1,800 in Park Tool products.
In addition, one exceptional program will receive the President's Choice Award, which will provide them with an additional $1,000 to spend on more tools and repair equipment.

"The bicycle can be many things to many people — transportation, exercise, just plain fun — and it's a machine that most people can learn to fix and maintain. If you have a bike, and you know how to fix it, that's an empowering feeling. With the explosion of interest in cycling that's happened over the past year and a half, we feel it's more important than ever to support the organizations that are using bikes to do good in their communities," said Eric Hawkins, Park Tool president and owner.

More information Winners will be announced in mid-January 2022.
