ORA has many ongoing outdoor projects: trail construction and maintenance, educational programs, clinics on outdoor skills, as well as sponsoring many local events like the La Crosse Omnium and the Wisconsin Off Road Series or WORS, Women’s MTN Biking Clinic, Take a Kid MTN Biking and more.
ORA has more than one donation fund, in fact at any given time we may have several funds supporting specific projects. We prefer that all donations go to the ORA General Fund, but for those that are passionate about donating to a specific project, we want to give you that option as well. And rest assured any project specific donation we receive would be used as directed by you.
The ORA General Fund is our source of funding for everything we do; from mapping new trails to Fat Tire Bike trail grooming equipment. This fund supports the events we’re involved in and pays our insurance bills and other essential expenses. The ORA Board of Directors oversees the ORA General Fund and makes decisions based on the best interests of ORA and it’s membership.
