2nd Annual Ride For The Westside Doubles Attendance And Raises Critical Funding To Support Equitable Neighborhood Revitalization

Westside Future Fund (WFF) would like to thank everyone who attended our second annual Ride for the Westside. WFF was honored to partner with Quest CDC for this year’s event where 450 people registered – more than doubling attendance from last year. Corporate partners, community leaders, residents, and families joined together on Saturday, September 30 on the historic Westside for a morning of family-friendly events including an 11-mile bike loop, 5K run, a Peachtree Road Race Qualifier, and a walk.

WFF and Quest CDC would also like to thank actress, singer, Real Housewives of Atlanta star, and founder of the nonprofit DREAMAKERS Drew Sidora who served as our emcee for the day.

With $55 million in philanthropic support, WFF will be able to build on this progress and leverage an additional $45 million in low-cost financing from its Impact Fund. An additional $10 million in public grants will help the organization finance:

  • 285 multifamily units, of which 185 will serve families at 60% Area Median Income (AMI) and less.
  • 225 single-family homes with accompanying income-qualified down-payment assistance, and
  • Supporting the Anti-Displacement Tax Fund to help legacy resident homeowners stay in the community
