BC Loves Community Nonprofit Organizations
Bingham Cyclery continues to be committed to the causes of charitable organizations throughout the Wasatch Front. In keeping with our goals we only donate to 501(c)3 organizations that encourage cycling as a lifestyle for all, getting more kids on bikes, and trail building, advocacy and maintenance. During the months of March through September, we select a nonprofit for each region (Salt Lake Valley and Weber/Davis County) to fundraise for at our shops via our BC Loves Community program.
HOW IT WORKS
Each nonprofit is highlighted for 4 weeks and customers are invited to donate at their time of purchase to that nonprofit’s cause. Additionally, Bingham Cyclery will highlight the nonprofit via social media and email and encourage donations, followers, and overall community building. At the end of the fundraising period, Bingham Cyclery will collect all donated funds and provide a match at 50% of what was earned in product donations that can include bikes, clothing, accessories, service gift certificates and more.
