western pennsylvania fallen riders





First, we are not an M.C., R.C., or Riding Association.  We are a 501(C)(3) nonprofit corporation certified as a public charity by the lRS.  We have one purpose and one purpose only.  To be there to help the families of riders who are injured or killed while on their bike.  We don’t care if you are a club member or an independent.  If you go down, and your family needs help, that’s where we come in.
We will help the family or club with funeral expenses if needed, help with medical transportation costs if that’s needed, or, if a rider is injured and hospitalized we will help with such mundane, but necessary, things as paying a utility bill to keep the family’s lights on, or even help with some grocery money, if that is what is needed.
We are designed to be there to help in whatever way we can and that we have the ability to provide.

Secondly, we do not have memberships as such.  lf you ride a motorcycle, then you are a brother or sister in the wind and that makes you a member.  We receive no payment or salary from the foundation for what we do.  Any and all funds we have are for the help of the fallen and their families.  The Foundation is totally dependent upon donations from individuals for what it does.  We don’t have government grants or big corporate sponsors behind us.  We are people who ride, who saw a real need in our rather extended family of the wind, and did what it takes to take action about the situation.



The mission of the Western Pennsylvania is to provide assistance to families of Western Pennsylvania who show need when a family member is a victim of a serious injury or fatal motorcycle accident. Western Pennsylvania Fallen Riders Foundation ® was created to give assistance to these families, after they have lost a loved one due to serious injury or death in a motorcycle accident while riding any licensed street legal 2 or 3 wheeled motorcycle.
The money we are able to give to these families will help them with bills, buy food or to help cover some of the funeral, or medical expenses of their lost loved one, these funds are raised by having charity fund raising events, and from individual charitable donations. It is open to all riders regardless of whether club affiliated or not.
