Your Donations Make a Difference - Your Donations Change Lives
Last year your donations made it possible for BBP to donate 563 bicycles to kids (for many, it was their very first bike), create a bicycle transportation program for adult refugees, and teach over 2000 people about bicycle repair and safety. When we say that your donations "change lives" it's because we have the privilege of witnessing it every single day.
Our goal is to make sure your donations are meaningful, personal, and impactful, and we take them very seriously. We encourage you to come to our shop, take tour, help at a kid's bike giveaway, and see first hand how far your dollars are going. Send me an email Jimmy@boisebicycleproject.org and we'll set up a time to officially introduce you to BBP.
OTHER WAYS TO GIVE
DONATE BICYCLES AND PARTS
BBP takes bicycles and parts in any shape, size, or condition. Our volunteers and mechanics refurbish these bicycles and get them back out into the community. Please drop your donations off during our open hours and we can give you a tax receipt.
Due to limited shop space, if you have a donation of 5 or more bikes, please give us a heads up in advance: 208-429-6520 or email@example.com
The Boise Bicycle Project has partnered with Everybody Solar and Empowered Solar in a campaign to add solar panels to BBP's new addition. Power is BBP's leading utility cost and directly effects the amount of money we are able to invest in our programs. Not only does adding solar fit within BBP's mission of reducing impact on the environment and carbon footprint, it would allow us to direct long-term sustainable funding into our programs instead of our power bill! Join the effort and help us become more sustainable today!
