The HBC Steering Committee, with the assistance of the Treasurer, is responsible for maintaining the finances for the organization. This includes: maintaining checking and savings account(s), depositing income (which is primarily generated from membership dues), and paying any bills and/or obligations engendered by the organization. Depending on the number of current members, the Club’s income generally is sufficient to off-set the Club’s expenses. The expenses incurred by HBC in 2017 totaled 755.26 and are broken down as:

In addition, the Club on occasion provides volunteer and financial support for certain bicycle-related causes or projects in the community. Some past examples are: Adopt-A-Highway cleanup (on-going); OH18 Rail Crossing Defense Project (2009); The Heartland (Underpass) Trail (2010); and Rumble Strips Abatement Project (2012). In 2018 the HBC Steering Committee authorized the Pedals For Police project, consisting of a donation to the Stevens Point Police Department for the purchase of a Trek Electric Edition Police patrol bike for their bike patrol program. The Club is committed to supporting other project(s) in the future as we have in the past.
