The Bike Union Mentoring Project relies both on community donations and on retail revenue to support our youth programming. To support our social mission, The Bike Union sells refurbished bicycles as well as new parts and accessories. The bikes that we sell come to us from generous people like you who are interested in supporting our social enterprise and helping to empower the youth we serve.
How can you help?
The Bike Union is a social enterprise, which means we are a non-profit business that applies commercial strategies to maximizing social impact rather than profits. When you patronize our bike shop, you are supporting an organization with a purpose – an organization that gives right back to our community. If you appreciate what we do but don’t need anything from the bike shop, it’s easy to still offer your support. To make your tax-deductible donation via Paypal please click here.
