MRFA&E Organizational Efforts Complete
The Motorcycle Riders Foundation for Awareness and Education, Inc. would like to announce that it has received its official tax-exempt status from the Internal Revenue Service. This qualifies us as a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization under the Internal Revenue Code. All donations made to MRFA&E are tax-deductible for federal income tax purposes.
MRFA&E will not be engaging in issue advocacy or lobbying of any kind. We will be providing several valuable services to the Motorcyclists' Rights Movement however. A room in the Washington DC office of the Motorcycle Riders Foundation will now be dedicated to legislative and historical research. It will be funded by MRFA&E.
This room, commonly referred to as the "States' Room", will be available to motorcyclists visiting Washington free of charge. The room has high speed internet access and contains a wealth of printed material on current affairs, in addition to rare information on the motorcyclists' rights movement, worldwide. The MRF's Vice President of Government Affairs will also be available to brief visiting delegations of Motorcyclists' Rights Organizations on the fundamentals of the procedures of the United States Congress, as well as historical information on the District of Columbia.
MRFA&E will help sponsor Educational Workshops put on by MRF at the annual and regional conferences.
MRFA&E is proud to announce that its first donor is Michael Hupy of Milwaukee Wisconsin. Mr. Hupy - a stalwart supporter of motorcyclists'
rights - is a member of ABATE of Wisconsin and Illinois. He has donated the amount of $5000.00. Mike Hupy has provided encouragement and advice to this effort long before its inception. We offer our sincere thanks and gratitude to him.
Also lining up early to support this new organization was Ginger Magures from the state of Washington. Ginger has been a driving force for motorcyclists' rights in the Pacific Northwest for decades. Her generous donation, made at this year's Meeting of the Minds, is most appreciated.
Others joined in with donations at the Meeting of the Minds in Denver, giving MRFA&E a running start.
Motorcyclists, and indeed the general public, are encouraged to donate to the Motorcycle Riders Foundation for Awareness and Education. If you are a motorcyclist and wish to see that future activists receive solid training in the rudiments of the rights movement, MRFA&E is the organization to donate to. Or perhaps you are just a concerned individual who feels that more Americans should be educated as to the fact that our freedoms are being eroded. A donation – large or small – will in some way contribute to an enlightened public.
MRFA&E is ready to go to work for you. With your support we can make a difference. Remember, all donations made to MRFA&E are tax-deductible for federal income tax purposes.

The MRF proudly claims state motorcyclists' rights organizations and the very founders of the American riders' rights movement among its leading members. The MRF is involved in federal and state legislation and regulations, motorcycling safety education, training, and public awareness.
