SF Bicycle Coalition vs SFBC Education Fund
The SFBC Education Fund is a 501(c)(3) organization that supports all of our organizational work except for endorsements of political candidates. The SF Bicycle Coalition (SFBC) is a 501(c)(4) organization, which means that contributions to the SFBC are not tax-deductible. Your support of the SFBC Education Fund will be used for all of our important organizational needs except for direct political lobbying and candidate endorsements.
If a tax-deductible donation helps you, it also helps us! We can only be successful at making San Francisco a great biking city if we have the resources to do so. For tax-deductible donations, checks must be written to the SFBC Education Fund.
Gifts to the SFBC Education Fund are used to make San Francisco a better place for biking. Current programs and projects supported by the SFBC Education Fund include:
- Connecting the City Campaign
- Free Urban Bicycle Education classes & “how to ride a bike” workshops for adults
- “Freedom from Training Wheels” for small children
- Frequent driver education (taxis, commercial vehicles, city-car share organizations, Muni bus drivers) on how to share the road safely with bikes
- Bike to Work Day event hosting and promotion
- Business consultation on how to make businesses more bike friendly
- Valet bike parking at over 75 outdoor city-wide events & at all SF Giants home games
