Bikersinc is an all volunteer organization that serves the local communities by providing information and education. Our organization also provides veterans support through mentorship, financial and benefits assistance and more.
Started in 2012 by a Veteran with a passion for motorcycles and for helping other people, he decided to mainly focus on fellow Veterans. As time went on a few friends stepped in to assist with program ideas and additional funding to kick-start it.
Funded solely by private donations, paper work was sent in and we received our 501(c)3 status in 2013 and Bikersinc became a reality and since the founder is from Indiana, it was decided to make this our home base for now.
After reading about how a few other Non-Profits operate, it was decided by the Board of Directors that individual donations go directly to the programs that donors specify with a separate funding source for building upkeep and other essentials. This way there are no hidden agendas where one might think they are donating for personal expenses.
As we grew it became apparent that just two basic programs were not enough so with us being the "square pegs in the round holes" kind of folks we naturally expanded. What you see on these pages is a huge work in progress because we believe that being a service to others and our community is forever evolving and we need to evolve with it.
In dealing with the general public we have come across folks that do not take us seriously because of our name, that most of our Staff ride motorcycles or even the way we dress. We’re a boots on the ground organization, always have and always will be.
Naming of our Organization
Not surprisingly we get asked this question frequently in our travels, but our name does stand for something.
Bikersinc is an acronym and stands for:
Bringing Information Knowledge Entrepreneurship & Rider Sodality for Indiana's Neighborhood Coalition
With that we want you to scroll through our pages, see what we are all about and just maybe you can see our vision, as we see it.
Started as a Veterans organization in 2012, Bikersinc has seen phenomenal growth, as more people were interested in what we stand for and what we are doing. We are not interested in the quantity of members but the quality of members. That is why we have a limit on membership.
But we are much more than a Veterans organization, we have also been embarking on preserving our Motorcycle Heritage. It all started with Motorcyclism and grown to us being the fiscal sponsor of the Indiana Motorcycle Historical Society.
Our project titled "Motorcyclism" has been chosen as an Officially Endorsed Indiana Bicentennial Legacy Project event.
