We can’t possibly say yes to the thousands of inquiries that we get for discounted and free shipping from people shipping their bikes to and from fundraising charity events. So instead of offering additional discounts to just some of the many cyclists who are raising money for charitable organizations, we take the approach of giving our best rates to all cyclists all the time.
We appreciate our customers’ efforts to raise money for many excellent causes and likewise believe that giving back is important. So we are proud to run our Buck Up For Bikes (BUFB) Program, which raises money for selected non-profit organizations that are working to get more people on bikes and make the world a better place through cycling. We also run our own internal giving program to match staff contributions to charitable organizations across the U.S.
Through our Non Profit Program (NPP), we do offer shipping discounts to non profit organizations that have been granted 501(c)(3) status by the IRS. For more information on how your non profit organization can apply to our NPP, see “Do you offer a discount for non profit organizations?”
