On November 1, our application to be a bike distribution partner opens! So if you are a 501c3 serving youth, marginalized communities or, if you work at a public school and want to be a distribution partner, please mark November 1 on your calendar. The application takes less than 5 minutes to fill out and it will be open from November 1 through January 31, 2024. Learn more about being a distribution partner.
If you know a nonprofit that serves marginalized people of all ages or a public school that may be interested in receiving free bikes for their constituents, please share this news with them.
To date, we have distributed 9,997 bikes to 162 nonprofits and schools! We often get asked, “How do I get a bike?” We give our bikes to other charitable nonprofits and public schools who determine who our recipients will be. This system works well because they are already working with area youth and people in need. If you want to receive a bike, be sure to mention the Free Bikes 4 Kidz program to your school social worker, or a nonprofit that you receive services from. Examples are Badger Prairie Needs Network, River Food Pantry, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Centro Hispano, Madinah Muslim School, and a 150 more!
