From now through Friday, November 25, 2022, make a monetary gift to BikeX and your contribution will be matched by the Board during our first-ever Board Match!

The Board has noticed that charitable gifts to the Bike Exchange are lagging what we’ve received in previous years.  At the same time, we’re repairing more bikes than ever, which clearly adds to our expenses.  We know it has been a tough year for many, particularly among the recipients of our bicycles, so please help us end the year on a strong note by making a gift today.  All gifts will be matched up to a total of $20,000, doubling the impact of your contribution.

Your gift can make a difference in the lives of our local community.

  • an $11 gift will pay for a U-lock for one of our bike recipients
  • a $37 gift will provide a U-lock, helmet, and basic front and rear lights to one recipient
  • a $50 gift will cover the parts needed to refurbish a typical bike to be donated to someone in need
  • $200 will pay for parts/supplies for one community bike repair event
  • a $350 gift will cover the cost of kids helmets for our quarterly delivery of kids bikes to a partner organization
  • $920 would provide enough funds to supply a U-lock with every bike we donate in a typical month

The Silicon Valley Bicycle Exchange is a Section 501c(3) non-profit organization.  All donations are tax-deductible to the fullest extent permitted by law.

If you’d prefer, we’ll also accept cash, checks, retirement distributions, Paypal and stock. Just drop us a note.

Does your employer do a giving match? Definitely take advantage of that. If you donate through your employer’s platform, like Benevity, just let us know the amount and we’ll count it against this goal. 

Please make a gift today via Givebutter below. Our Board Match is in effect between now and midnight on November 25, 2022, and all gifts will be matched up to a total of $20,000. Don’t delay - your gift will have double the impact during this period only.

If you prefer to designate your donation for a specific item, you can also donate here and we'll put it towards this goal.
