You Can Do This!

We get it: fundraising sounds intimidating. Most of us had never raised money before joining Cycle for the Cause, and the thought of a “fundraising minimum” sent a shiver down our spine. But – and you probably already know how this story ends – with the support of the Cycle for the Cause community, our Team Captains, and the Cycle for the Cause fundraising staff, every year our Riders and Crew exceed their fundraising minimums (and expectations!).  So far we’ve raised more than $10 million!

Fundraising Minimums

Rider (ages 18-29) $2000 minimum

Rider (ages 30+) $2750 minimum

Crew (all ages) $500 minimum

Just like riding a bike, fundraising is a skill that can be learned (really, we promise!)

The tips and tools you’ll find here are a great place to start.  Both first time and returning Riders and Crew are encouraged to attend a Fundraising Workshop, where you’ll get a deep dive into fundraising best practices from experienced Riders, Cycle for the Cause fundraising experts and industry leaders (and there may or may not be donuts – which you can have, given how much riding you’ll do). For more personalized help with your fundraising plan, contact a Ride Coordinator or your Team Captain.
