Membership and Donations
Bike Easy needs you as a member to support our great work!
Bicycle Education Campaign
In 2014 we will build a Bicycle Ambassador Program, training young people to spread the message of safe cycling in their communities while learning valuable job training skills. Additionally, we will seek to educate all St. Bernard Parish 4th and 5th graders in bicycle safety.
We seek your help for critical safety gear like helmets and lights, workshop equipment, and a brand new scholarship fund for organizations that need this class but cannot afford it. Please help support our education program in 2014!
Donate to the campaign by selecting from the drop down menu to the right.
Your tax-deductible sustaining membership pays for programs like these:
$30/mo Bike Lover – Provide bicycle workshop scholarships to neighborhood organization in need
$20/mo Commuter – Covers stipends for two youth bicycle instructors to teach 100 community members bicycle safety
$10/mo Sustainer – Helmet give-away to a youth bicyclist in need for 12 riders
$100 One time donation – Buy and distribute 25 front and rear lights in a bicycle light intervention
$50 One time donation – 50 Bicycle map and safety guides printed and distributed via the public library
Portions of these programs are funded by foundations and federal funding, but we need help with critical parts that are not funded. Sustaining donations help us plan ahead and be more strategic about our programs in 2014.
All donations between now and January 1, 2014 will be counted toward this campaign.
