It truly takes a community to do what we do. We rely on financial support, bike donations, volunteers and retail customers to support our work. We would love to count you as one of the hundreds of people who are part of our community of support.
Make a personal contribution
Support us in a way that is workable and meaningful for you. Make an annual gift or give monthly. We will put it to good use in our bike safety programs for youth and adults with low incomes.
- $35 helps us provide free repair resources at our bike shop for one day;
- $50 helps us give a child her first bicycle at the Holiday Bike Drive;
- $100 provides five bicycle quick fixes at one of our community partner organizations;
- $290 covers the cost of one Bike Camp scholarship;
- A gift of any amount makes a huge difference!
Online donations are processed securely through Network for Good.

Call Mike at 503.288.8864 ext. 325 and he can take your payment over the phone.
Many organizations offer workplace giving programs, either employee matching or giving campaigns. Ask your employer about employee matching, a simple way to maximize your contribution. Some corporations, like Microsoft and Intel, will also match employee volunteer hours. If you are an employee of a participating business, they will match your contribution of time with funds when you volunteer for the Community Cycling Center.
You can also organize a giving campaign. A giving campaign gathers motivated and passionate individuals together to support a common cause. It’s fun, makes a big difference, and we make it easy by providing all the materials you need. This is especially fun and effective at work – mobilize your coworkers to help give bikes to kids in need! What you need to do:
- Promote the campaign – we will send you all the materials.
- Organize a meeting or distribute giving envelopes and gift card order forms.
- We will then follow up with a letter to your group with a summary of your success!
Call Mike at 503.288.8864 ext. 325 for materials.
