Bicycling is simple but incredibly transformative for those that possess the skill of riding. Bicycling has the power to improve physical health, mental health, the environment, and much, much more.
Can I donate a bike?
We do not accept individual bike donations, but would encourage you to seek out a local bike shop or recyclery in your community to donate a used bike to.
What is the Kindergarten PE Program?
The Kindergarten PE Program equips schools with everything teachers need to teach children how to ride bikes. The program includes teacher training and certification, a structured 8 lesson curriculum, a fleet of 22 Strider 14x Balance Bikes, 22 Pedal Conversion Kits, 22 fully-adjustable helmets, and a 5 year support plan.
Where does the donated money go?
All money donated to the Strider Education Foundation is used to equip schools with bikes and helmets, train teachers on the curriculum, and teach kids how to ride.
How much of my donation is tax-deductible?
100% of your donation is tax-deductible. You will receive a confirmation email of your donation with the amount donated. For all donations over $250, you will receive a tax receipt letter from Strider Education Foundation via USPS mail or email.
Is there a timeline for schools to reach their fundraising goal?
Schools will have a one-year period from fundraising page launch date to compile the needed funds for the complete Kindergarten PE Program. Should a school not reach their fundraising goal in one calendar year from launch date, funds will be disbursed into the All Kids Bike General Fund and the school will remain on the waitlist. Waitlist schools who have not reached their fundraising goals are fulfilled on a first come, first serve basis from the All Kids Bike General Funds.
Are there matching funds?
In the event matching funds become available, schools will be notified on a case-by-case basis.
Are there any fundraising perks for schools?
Schools receive a fundraising tool kit at the time of their application submission.
Each school will be featured on the All Kids Bike national crowdfunding platform when they have raised $750 toward their school's Kindergarten PE Program.
Once a school has raised $1,500, they will receive a $250 bonus from All Kids Bike/ Strider Education Foundation.
Once a school has raised $3,000, they will be spotlighted on multiple national newsletters and email blasts.
