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.

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.

This one comes from Jenny and Stan S.: “We went with 2 neighbors to Utah prior to the lockdown for solitary bike and hiking. Photos of blue/green MTB trail in Dead Horse State Park. The trails were empty and dry. The visitor center had too many people for my comfort. Later Utah visitor centers closed. Mercifully, most  bathrooms remained open.

We traveled with bleach spray, wipes, gloves, buffs, raincoats (to wear indoors!). We ate inside our car and motel room. PBJ and frozen turkey pot pies.”
