Please read this page in its entirety before submitting a request for help. Thank you!
First off, we’d like to say that we understand that this is a difficult time for you, so we will try our best to make this process as easy as we can. However, since we are an official 501 (c)(3) non-profit, there are some requirements we are obligated to meet to continue to qualify under this type of status.
Requirements before requesting help
Moto F.A.M. raises money solely through the generosity of individuals and businesses that support our cause. These partnerships allow us to raise the money we need to help each rider (or their family) after an accident. This is why it’s important for us to make some clarifications.
• Moto F.A.M. does not and cannot support riders that were “under the influence” the day of their accident. We have a ZERO TOLERANCE POLICY for this. We will also not fund a rider that was riding outside of street legal guidelines (example: street racing or stunts of any kind). By supporting this kind of behavior, we would be jeopardizing the integrity of our organization, as well as the support we receive.
• We’d also like to clarify a few other important things before you submit your request. We only fund street motorcycle riders. We do not fund racing accidents or off-road riding. We also do not cover anything sport related.
• Another clarification we feel it’s important to make is the type/level of injuries we support. Moto F.A.M.’s focus is directed towards riders that cannot carry on with life the way it was before their accident. This includes accidents that leave riders having to endure an extensive hospital stay, surgery, recovery, and rehab. In the past we have helped riders that have suffered traumatic brain injuries, paralysis, amputation, or the loss of a loved one. These are injuries that impact the rest of these people’s lives. Their accident has cost them their job and left them learning to adapt to life differently.
We are very sympathetic to everyone who has suffered any kind of injury caused by a motorcycle accident, but we cannot fund injuries that can’t be considered “life changing.” If your accident can not be defined as life changing, please understand we will not be able to donate or repost your fundraising information. Moto F.A.M. is being funded by people who truly believe and trust we are distributing these funds responsibly.
• We’d also like to make it very clear that we don’t help riders trying to raise money to repair or replace their motorcycle following an accident. Please look through our social media to become better familiarized with the type of accidents/situations we do help with.
A brief explanation of what Moto F.A.M. does to help
Moto F.A.M. will donate $500 to the Gofundme (or other fundraising campaign) set up for the motorcyclist involved in a serious motorcycle accident. Once we do that, we reach out to the people that follow us through our website and social media by posting the information and link to the fundraising campaign. The idea is to use the powerful reach of social media in the hopes that the more people see the campaign, the more potential for other donations.
Before setting up a Gofundme, please read our 4 Tips for Creating a Successful Fundraising Campaign.
If you or someone you know are in need of help, please fill out the form below. Moto F.A.M. will contact you in 3-5 business days. Please be prepared to provide additional information if requested.
If your accident does not meet our guidelines, please accept our deepest apology. Since starting Moto F.A.M., we have seen it all, and our hearts are with those riders that will carry the weight of their accidents forever. That is why we have chosen to redefine and emphasize our mission. We stand by those riders that have forever been impacted by their crash. Our passion is to help them, as well as continue to find ways to better accommodate these riders’ needs in the future. Thank you for your understanding.
