It’s end-of-year fundraising time for Cycles for Change, and this year it’s more important and pressing than ever that we reach our goal of raising $15,000 on Give to the Max Day on November 15, 2018!
2018 has seen very happy highs and some unfortunate lows. This summer, we:
- Welcomed our new Executive Director Tina Cho to Cycles for Change
- Held 6 awesome Slow Roll St. Paul rides
- Taught bike mechanics to 7 new youth apprentices in our 8-week Summer Program
- Tripled our number of Learn to Ride classes and taught over 200 adults how to ride a bike
Each year, we strive to increase our sustaining donor base–generous people like you–who believe in our mission and our work to continue building a diverse and empowered community of bicyclists in Minneapolis and St. Paul. Recent tax reforms have led to some major changes in foundational funding, and many small nonprofits (including C4C) have been directly impacted. Your generous support builds the foundation for our work and directly funds our ability to continue our Youth Apprenticeship program, Learn to Ride classes, weekly Open Shop nights, and social enterprise bike shop. Now, more than ever, we need to sustain and build on these important resources to our community.
Please support Cycles for Change on Give to the Max Day this year by making a financial contribution, or by becoming a sustaining donor. Your tax-deductible donation directly supports programming, as well as general operating expenses like rent, marketing costs, staff professional development, and team building time. Together we can use bicycles to impact our community.
This year, our board of directors will match every donation of $75 or more, up to a total of $3,000. Please consider increasing your contribution this year; it will double your impact.
Thank you again for your continued support of Cycles for Change.
