2014-2015 Project funding overview

Founded in 1976, the PPA is a Public Benefit Organisation committed to promoting cycling and the interests of cyclists. Recreational cycling (both on road and off-road), development through cycling, safe cycling and advocacy are among the PPA’s priorities.

The Association allocates proceeds received annually from the Cape Town Cycle Tour Trust (with PPA and Rotary Claremont being the beneficiaries of the Trust) to internal as well as external cycling-related projects.

The project funding year corresponds to PPA’s membership and financial year, which runs from 1 July to 30 June. Funding applications generally open annually in January and close in March, where-after all applications are evaluated and allocations made.  Late applications (received after March) will be evaluated on merit, should any funding be available.
