The Polaris Trails Grant has helped off-road vehicle, all-terrain vehicle, and snowmobile organizations across the US and Canada since 2006. This year, the grants are supporting 14 organizations with gifts of up to $10,000 each, and Polaris has donated more than $3.5 million to date.

“Riding builds a connection between friends and family and the outdoors, and the impact these clubs and organizations make locally through their grassroots efforts and ingenuity is significant,” Polaris’ president of Off-Road, Steve Menneto, said. “Polaris is proud to support their efforts through our biannual Trails Grants program, which has donated more than $3.5 million since its inception.”

Polaris’ grants range from helping the Adirondack Snowdrifters Snowmobile Club repair two bridges to working with the U.S. Department of Agriculture in Duchesne, Utah, to maintain trails and update signage on the Badlands OHV Trail. This year’s 14 recipients bring the total number of organizations helped to more than 405, and grant applications run twice annually, so there will be another round this fall.

The deadline for fall applications is September 1, and the Trails Grant committee reviews applications during that month. If you’re interested in applying, your organization has to be a 501(c) (3), 501(c)(7), government or nonprofit entity. If you’re approved, you will need to provide a report with photos of before, during, and after the grant-funded work, and you won’t be eligible for another grant if the promised efforts aren’t completed.
