|Our Mission: No biker brother or sister, or needy child go without
food, electricity, or medical needs while suffering from an injury.
Hello everyone, my name is Mickey Carter (aka) Bear, founder of
Bikers And Needy Children Foundation (B.A.N.C.). B.A.N.C.
Foundation is a NONPROFIT Foundation founded to assist injured
Bikers and Needy Children.
According to the DOT statistics, as of 2006 there were over 6,600,000
registered bikers in the USA with an average of a 48% increase every
10 years. However according to FARS, (Fatality Analysis Reporting
System), the number of miles ridden per rider has decreased by 31%
but the number of fatalities has risen by 89%! Who pays the
electricity, buys groceries, or takes care of medical needs not covered
by insurance when a biker is injured? And, there are a lot of injured
bikers. According to DOT HS 811 172 report there were 96,000
reported motorcycle injuries in 2008 and 5290 bikers died. Like most
of the biker community I was to proud to ask for help after I went
down. I had no way to pay my bills & no help. When I started this
foundation it was with pocket change I saved up. After a year I had
enough to get started, go through the legalities, and become a legal
501 (c) 3 under Public Charities status 170 (b)(A)(vi), trademarked,
nonprofit foundation that is registered with the IRS.
We know the economy is bad, but will the economy help you or your
comrade if you/them are injured? B.A.N.C. Foundation may be able
to. I am an OSB. I believe in stopping & helping one of our own.
And, I believe that if there are over 6 million bikers in the USA, we
should be able to help our own when they are injured and needy.
They shouldn't have to go without food, heat, water, or medical
All the work with The B.A.N.C. Foundation is done by me, the
founder, volunteers, members, & supporters. To date all monies are
made through contributions, fund,raisers, the sale of patches, &
memberships, Poker Runs, and 50/50 drawings and picking up
pennies. ALL FUNDS raised are deposited into a bank account until
needed, then dispersed to injured Bikers and Children to help in their
time of need & are dispersed to the most sever cases first. There are
no paid employees. In order to receive these funds you must first
provide documentation with a complete application. The funds paid
out do not have to be paid back. All we ask for you to do is make a
contribution back to the Foundation when you are back on you feet
and able to support yourself again. Please contribute what you can,
spare pocket change, $1.00, $2.00, what ever you can afford, or
support us by buying a membership/pacth. No contribution is to
small. Without your help and support the foundation cannot continue
to help our injured brothers & sisters.
