Besides cash, donations of bicycles, parts, accessories, clothes and tools are what keep us afloat. Besides the many programs listed on our homepage, used bike sales enable our volunteer organization to pay for our rental space, liability insurance, tools and supplies. These generous donations are the lifeblood of BikeBBQ and allow us to teach people how to fix and maintain their own bicycle regardless of income level.

Donations of working or serviceable items are accepted during regular shop hours at the discretion of the shop manager. We typically do not accept bikes that have been exposed to weather for a significant amount of time or bikes originally from a big-box store like Target or Walmart.

We are a certified 501c3 non-profit and provide donation receipts for tax purposes upon request.
