Together we are building a culture of cycling and increasing access to a low-cost mode of transportation. Explore the different ways to donate, whether it’s one time or recurring giving.

If Bikes for Kids has inspired you, please consider donating to support our programs. Find out more and donate below to be a part of our mission to build a culture of cycling.

Make a Donation

Your financial donation supports our work, builds a culture of cycling and helps create a community that’s better for all! While the bikes we receive are donated, it’s not free for us to give them away. They are vehicles and every single one must be tuned and safe to ride. This means purchasing parts and employing professional mechanics to do the work. Thank you for your support.

Donate Bikes & Parts

We take old bikes, used parts…anything bike! Clear that old bike out of your shed, garage or back porch and bring it to us. Your refurbished  bicycle will help another member of our community have access to transportation!

TO DONATE A BIKE: Visit us at 354 Coyier Lane, Monday-Friday between 9:30am-4pm. If those hours don’t work for you, we also have shop hours on Monday and Tuesday nights from 6-8pm

We hold our annual garage sale in June and ask that you wait to donate goods for the garage sale until May 1 or before May 20 due to limited space. Things people often donate are car racks, trainers, trailers, bikes, parts, and anything bike! June 1, 2024 is the date of our garage sale fundraiser.

Mega Match Fundraiser graphic

In early 2024, Bikes for Kids Wisconsin was awarded $20,000 by the Madison Community Foundation to help us purchase a Bike Bus to haul bikes and supplies! This means we need to raise an additional $40,000 by the end of 2024 to make this possible.

An anonymous supporter is willing to match donations in the amounts of $1,000, $1,500, $2,000, and $2,500 or more up to $15,000 to help us get there. 

To make a donation, click here or visit our Get Involved page to make an online donation. You can send a check made out the Bikes for Kids Wisconsin and mail it to us at PO Box 6594, Madison, WI 53716

Major donors will have the option of having their logos featured on the Bike Bus to show our gratitude for the support and show the community how you care about transportation equity and investing in our community.
