Giving Tuesday 2017

#GivingTuesday 2017 Facebook Fundraisers

It’s Giving Tuesday and some of our Board and Staff members are raising funds for Bike SLO County on Facebook. Donate today and your  #GivingTuesday donations will be matched by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

You give $10? It becomes $20!

You give $50? It becomes $100!


You get the picture. Your donations double and they add up fast, enabling Bike SLO County to work even harder in 2018 on programs like RideWell. Bike SLO County staff and volunteers refurbish gently used bikes, then provide them free of charge to some of SLO County’s neediest residents.

  • Your $150 tax deductible gift provides one child, woman or man with a bicycle, helmet, lights, bike lock and a bike education course to make sure they learn how to ride safe and smart.
  • Your $600 contribution provides all of the above to a family of four, granting access to sustainable, non-polluting transportation, physical fitness & old fashioned fun for SLO County residents in need.
  • Your $1000 donation makes it possible for six SLO County residents to receive the gift of mobility and get their lives rolling again!

You can donate to any of the Facebook fundraisers benefitting Bike SLO County listed below. Why so many? The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation will match up to $1000 per individual fundraiser, but they will donate up to $50,000 in total to any single nonprofit. If any of the fundraisers listed below have already raised $1000, please click another link and donate to one below the $1000 threshold. If we collectively raise $5000, they’ll double that amount to $10,000!
