The JAM Fund was created in 2003 by Jeremy Powers, Alec Donahue and Mukunda Feldman, good friends brought together with a passion for cycling. The JAM Fund helps young, motivated cyclists achieve success both on and off the bike. 

Our Mission

JAM Fund is a comprehensive year-round program with a mission to lower the financial barriers within the sport of cycling and to develop athletes who are cycling's true ambassadors. As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, our activities are made possible through corporate sponsorships and individual donor support. Each year we issue grants including financial and technical resources and professional training to aspiring cyclists who show enthusiasm and determination to do their best.


Deserving applicants selected for our grants can receive cash, equipment, clothing and coaching. Learn how to apply.

“I am confident in myself as a professional racer, and it’s because JAM made me this way.
I will forever be grateful for that.

— Stephen Hyde, pro cyclist and JAM Fund graduate

Former U.S. National Criterium Champion Brad Huff is a close member of the JAM fam. We refer to him as the Silent B in JAM Fund. He's an avid supporter of our organization and our purpose. Perhaps his words say it best.
