The EYA Foundation is pleased to announce the opening of its Spring 2017 grant-making cycle. Twice a year, the foundation awards grants to non-profit organizations and private foundations working in the Washington metro area. Grant making priorities include contributions, donations, and sponsorships for programs focusing on disadvantaged populations, job training and education, beautification of blighted neighborhoods, and the rehabilitation of support facilities for the underserved.

EYA is partnering with the Washington Area Bicyclist Association (WABA) as the title sponsor of The Cider Ride. The Cider Ride is WABA's fall community bike ride, fundraiser, and one of the most popular annual events for the region's bike community. Hundreds of riders are expected to participate in this year’s ride on Saturday, November 5th. The ride starts and finishes in DC’s Edgewood neighborhood and winds its way from Northeast DC to Maryland’s Anacostia Tributary Trails through Hyattsville and College Park. Participants may choose from the 9-mile family-friendly trail to more challenging 23 or 47-mile routes. Cider and snack stops are provided along the way. After the ride, join EYA at the post-ride celebration taking place at the charming Dew Drop Inn.
