The Davis Bike Collective is a non-profit 501(c)(3) operates solely on volunteer time and contributions from donors. We would not exist without the generous help from many people. Our operating costs are relatively low but we still need to meet rent, buy tools and fund our outreach projects.
What do we need?
As much as we'd like to do this all for free, the world works with money and we have to pay rent, buy tools, fund projects, and pay for many adminstrative tasks. We have a budget just under $20, 000 a year and we do it all through your donations.
If you come to open shop hours at Bike Forth you can donate cash or check in person the minister on shift duty. You can also mail a check written to The Davis Bike Collective to 1221 1/2 4th Street, Davis, CA, 95616. Be sure to include your name and address so we can send you a receipt fot tax deduction purposes. We will have an online donation method soon!
Bicycles, Parts and Tools
We love bicycles and bicycle components, so please bring in that old cruiser or road bike for donation. They are the food for our patrons and they are always hungry for a new ride or a part to get their beloved bicycle back on the road.
If the bikes are the food, the tools are the pots and pans. We go through lots of tools with so many folks using them, much more than an average bike shop. Bike specific tools are in high demand, but we also need many general purpose tools. So if you have unused tools in your garage, bring them in!
We need help doing projects, running the shop, adminstration tasks, and doing outreach. Check out the volunteer page to find out the best way to share your time, smarts and energy with us.
We appreciate each and every donation that we recieve on a day to day basis and would love to mention every contributor's name but being that there are so many we will limit it to donations of $100 or more.
