Donate Directly to BikeFrog

To Building Our Future!

Thank you for considering making a donation! Bikefrog is a start-up community initiative. We are working towards (and looking forward to) becoming a 501(c)3 Non-Profit. Currently, we can only accept grassroots funding and sponsorship. All donations to Bikefrog are going directly into the initiative’s development to grow our community and our impact. While the Helmetheads are crossing the US on “Leap Across America” the inaugural tour, there will be a World Bicycle Relief profile set-up for Bikefrog. There, organizations and individuals will have the opportunity to give tax-deductible donations directly to the World Bicycle Relief through the support of Bikefrog’s events and this donation page!

Below, you’ll find an itemized expense report for the Inaugural Trip: Leap Across America. All items and prices on the report are solely for the trip and all donations made in excess of the total amount or money left over after the completion of the trip will be donated to the World Bicycle Relief.

The campaign to donate directly to the World Bicycle Relief starting May 27th, 2017 when the Helmetheads will dip thier bicycles into the Boston Harbor and begin the exciting adventure to the Pacific.

Kindest regards,

The BikeFrog Team
