Donating to The Bicycle Tree
Donations of Bikes and Parts
We depend upon the donation of bikes and parts to do the work that we do. We take all bikes and parts, which may be brought to the shop during our public hours or by appointment.
What do we use your donations for?
• Wrench and Ride: An eight-week program that teaches participants (primarily at-risk youth) bicycle maintenance and safety skills. Each student selects and repairs a bicycle from top to bottom. We go on a short ride together, and then they take their bikes home, along with a helmet, lock, and lights.
• Donations to worthy causes: we refurbish donated bicycles and work with area shelters and assistance programs to give the bikes to low-income individuals along with a helmet, lock, and lights. Examples of places we've donated bikes to recently include Mercy House and WISEPlace.
• Supporting bicycle education: We sell refurbished bikes and parts to help fund our maintenance workshops, classes, and the other work that we do.
Please help us continue to make bicycling approachable and accessible for all people in Orange County. Without the support of our donors, the work we do cannot be sustained or expanded. We can accept donations online through Paypal. You may donate using your credit card – no Paypal account required. Please follow the link below to donate to The Bicycle Tree. Note that these donations are processed through our nonprofit fiscal sponsor, Social and Environmental Entrepreneurs. Donations to The Bicycle Tree are tax-deductible according to section 501 (c) 3 of the Internal Revenue Code.
