Workplace Giving

Bicycle Colorado envisions a Colorado where bicycling is always safe and accessible for everyone. You can explore opportunities to give to help get us closer to this vision with your employer. Workplace giving programs allow you to make tax-deductible gifts to Bicycle Colorado through your paycheck. We encourage you to:

  1. Check with your employer. Do they offer workplace giving as a benefit? If so, get set up!
  2. If workplace giving is not currently offered, please advocate for your human resources department to set this up. You can direct them to the resources below.

Questions? Please email us at info@bicyclecolorado.org to learn more and get connected with Bicycle Colorado through workplace giving. 

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)

Bicycle Colorado is building and leading a movement that champions the interests of everyone who rides or wants to ride a bicycle in our state. 

Did you know people give four times more money when giving through paycheck contributions than they do via a one-time cash, check, or charge gift? That’s where you come in as an employer. It’s incredibly important for employers in Colorado to offer options for employees to give to support bike advocacy and other great causes through payroll contributions. Please see our list of programs that may be a great fit for your organization.

Community Shares of Colorado

Community Shares of Colorado is a locally grown community giving fund and our #1 recommendation at Bicycle Colorado. They support Colorado employers in their efforts to increase community engagement by connecting companies, employees and local nonprofits through Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Services. 

Your social responsibility engagement strategy needs to reflect your company’s culture and employees need to see their interests reflected in your engagement priorities. Community Shares helps you set your program up for success. 

Benevity

The Benevity Goodness Platform helps brands bring their social mission to life with technology to build a positive workplace culture, amplify the impact of corporate giving, and power pro-social brand engagement. Create compelling giving programs that help attract, retain and engage your diverse workforce and build an emotional connection between your company and causes. 

Network for Good

Network for Good works with companies like yours to help implement effective cause initiatives. We wrap our expertise around our proven giving platform to structure a solution perfectly suited to your business and philanthropic goals. Below is a list of our technical solutions—we’d love to discuss how we can put them to work for you.

We’re thrilled to see so many people out enjoying (and often rediscovering the joy of) riding a bike right now, and we’re asking ALL bicyclists to do their part to prevent the spread of #covid19 by wearing a mask or other face covering when out for a ride. Doing so keeps you, your loved ones, those around you, and all Coloradans safer while helping reduce stress on our medical system. If you still need a mask, click the link in our bio to pre-order one now and support our advocacy work! Thanks so much to everyone who has already purchased, and to @primalwear for supporting our efforts over the years. Ride on.
  • #BicycleColorado volunteers and staff members spent time today helping @denverurbangardens and @denverfoodrescue deliver “Grow a Garden” food boxes to home-bound families in Denver—via bike!

  • Tonight the #BicycleColorado team celebrated Stacey, our outgoing Development Director, with a virtual happy hour. Stacey has been an absolute rockstar for BC. We’re sad to see her leave, but thrilled for her as she heads out on a new adventure (hopefully in the #BikeAdvocacy space!) in North Carolina. Please join us in wishing her well!
