Here at GRIT, we're committed to helping riders afford the mobility they need to move beyond the pavement. We've created the Pay it Forward Low Income Fund to help riders in difficult financial situations afford a GRIT Freedom Chair.
The fund is endowed by private donations, GRIT's contribution of 10% of each sale of the GRIT Freedom Chair Forward, and proceeds from our customer referral program.
Applications for grants from the fund will be reviewed by the GRIT team. Selected beneficiaries will receive a grant to help cover much, but not all, of the cost of a refurbished GRIT Freedom Chair ($2495). These chairs have been lightly used, and have been inspected, refurbished, and certified by the GRIT assembly team. Currently, we're forecasting that we'll be able to subsidize around 5 chairs per year. The fund is new and we're working on strategies to increase the fund so that we can help more people. If you're applying to the fund, we also recommend checking out our other financing options.
If you have any questions about this application, the fund, or other financing options, please call us at 1-877-345-4748. We're happy to work with you to find the best solution for your specific situation.
