CYCLE is a non-profit completely funded through direct donations from the community.
We want as much of your donation getting to the student so we do not accept resources from 3rd party intermediary organizations that carves additional percentages off your donation. Our dedicated & passionate cadre of volunteers help us avoid support costs therefore a whopping 95% of your dollars go to purchasing bicycles and helmets.
Below are several opportunities for you to get involved with our organization.
Review our CYCLE corporate brochure and consider donating through corporate sponsorships and/or team building engagements. Please consider that an investment in a single bike has not only an immediate ROI but also has a lifetime benefit for the individual as well as the community.
Make a difference and join us for our next bicycle build. Our volunteers donated and built 5,300 bicycles to make the 2019 CYCLE Program a success!
Our most impactful events are our bicycle builds. Since we’ve started on our mission, we’ve awarded more than 175,000 bicycles to hard-working students in the Greater Houston area. Our bicycle build is a momentous family friendly occasion where companies and members of the public make donations to help build and deliver bicycles to the excited students who’ve earned it!
COVID-19 is of course impacting the build and is under review as to how we can build and get bicycles to deserving students all the while ensuring that all participants will be safe. Watch this space for more details.
Our annual Bicycle Ball is one of our biggest fundraisers. We gather for a night of dinner, dancing and just all around comradery. The event hosts live and silent auctions where each bid benefits our cause.
Unfortunately, the pandemic has put this event on hold for 2020. However, we will still be asking for your continued support at the same levels as in the past. This year your entire donation will be tax deductible! If you had planned to attend, we ask that you grab a glass of your favorite beverage, imagine yourself at the Ball and donate generously.
