DALMAC Fund Grant Report 2016
Established in 1975, The DALMAC Fund made its first contribution to bicycling in Michigan by donating a tandem bicycle to Lansing's St. Vincent Home for Children in 1976. This was a modest start toward realizing the vision of Dick Allen, the originator of DALMAC. Since then, DALMAC's success has allowed the Fund to grant over $1 Million to a variety of bicycling activities in Michigan ranging from safety and education programs to bicycle trail development. Marking its 46th anniversary in 2016, The DALMAC Fund will continue to contribute to the vitality of bicycling in Michigan for many years to come thanks to the dedicated TCBA volunteers and the hundreds of riders who enjoy DALMAC each year.
