You Helped the Bicycle Coalition Meet Our 2015 Year-End Fundraising Goal!

by | January 6, 2016 | Featured | 0 comments


In October, along with the announcement of the departure of our former Executive Director Alex Doty, the Bicycle Coalition was offered a $25,000 donation match by a generous donor — and our members responded in kind.

We’re still counting the donations received through the end of the year, but we know this much: More than 300 people donated to our End-of-Year fund, helped us meet the match, and then some.

Thank you very much for your kind and generous donations. The Bicycle Coalition is a people-powered organization, first and foremost, and literally could not exist without the support of our members and donors.

2015 was a very important year for the Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia. From the months-long planning that went into Philadelphia’s first-ever Vision Zero Conference, to the opening of the Manayunk Bridge, bicyclists in the region got a lot of wins throughout the year. But some of the most important projects we and the Greater Philadelphia bicycling community worked on—like our Vision Zero priorities, the Bucks County Bicycle Master Plan, getting more schools involved in Safe Routes Philly—will continue in 2016 and beyond.

So, if you didn’t find time to donate in December, there’s still time to do so now.


A $50 donation to the Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia is tax-deductible and gets you a year-long membership with all the benefits (discounts at regional bike shops, exclusive information and sales, invitations to group rides) and goes directly into our programming.
