About the Community Foundation and Rebuild Jamestown

The Community Foundation is a 501(3)(c) nonprofit organization and a public charity recognized by the IRS under sections 509(a)(1) and 170(b)(1)(A)(vi) of the Internal Revenue Code.   For more information, go to http://www.commfound.org/.  Funds donated to the Community Foundation are directed according to what the donor selects as the beneficiary.  Selecting Cyclists 4 Jamestown as the beneficiary identifies your donation as coming from our efforts.  These funds are combined with the funds from Rebuild Jamestown, which are also being managed by the Community Foundation.

Rebuild Jamestown is a fund administered through the Community Foundation targeted at rebuilding infrastructure and access for Jamestown, with the goal of raising more than 10% of the estimated $35 million in costs estimated by FEMA.  FEMA is expected to fund the remaining 90%.  For more information, go to http://www.rebuildjamestownco.org/.

Funds donated to the Cyclists 4 Jamestown Fund and the Rebuild Jamestown Fund are combined together to support Rebuild Jamestown.

Quotes from Cyclists about Jamestown

Thanks so much for doing this. I recently calculated that I’ve ridden to Jamestown over 300 times, and not a time has passed while during the ride (especially descending, I must confess) that I haven’t marveled at my incredible good fortune to be doing this here. In addition, we have some very close friends who live in Jamestown, so the loss is closer to home.

– Bob Unger, Boulder

Why are we doing this?

The following is an excerpt from a letter submitted by Don Hobbs, a leader in the Boulder cycling community:

As an active cyclist in Boulder and the Front Range, you know well that Jamestown is one of many small towns ravaged by the flood. But for local cyclists, it’s not just another town, it’s a fabled destination.  Just ask Bob Unger. From the Greenbriar Restaurant at the Left Hand Canyon turnoff at US Hwy 36 to the J’Town Mercantile where we pause and perhaps buy a snack and a drink, it’s just over 8 miles of pure cycling joy, both up and down. Or was.

Now the road is washed out, homes are lost, a life was lost, and folks are in dire need of support. We can’t even get up there to see the damage, we just have photos like this…..

Or this….

Cyclists and Jamestown have a long history. Sometimes that history has been rocky as we’ve worked to accommodate each other’s lifestyles and transportation objectives. Sometimes its gone very well. Now isn’t the time to think of anything but helping our neighbors.

This Cyclists for Jamestown fundraiser is the inspiration of Wednesday Morning Velo, a group of riders who gather at Amante at the crack of dawn all summer long for networking rides with our fellow professionals. Jamestown is a frequent destination, and a favorite of the group. It’s a great group of cyclists, and it’s our goal today to make a difference…a big difference…in the lives of our mountain dwelling friends.

Many of you may have suffered your own damage, and this may be a difficult time for you if you are focused on setting things right in your own household. But if you were fortunate enough to escape the Great Flood of 2013 unscathed, please consider offering help this worthy cause.

And we very much encourage you to ride over on October 19 and partake of the fun. We have a goal of raising at least $100,000 which we know the cycling community can deliver, hopefully a great deal more. Anything and everything you can share with those in need is helpful and adds to the ways we can make the lives of our friends in Jamestown just a little bit better in this very difficult time.
