If you have bikes to donate or contribute, many of the organizations on this page are willing recipients. If you cannot find an organization in your community, you should also check the programs listed on our "youth program directory" and "international recycling bicycles" pages.).  Still no luck, check locally for social service agency that serve the homeless, disadvantaged, orphanages, organize gift programs at Christmas, etc. (If you have additions or corrections for this list please let us know. )

* To discourage email harvesting, the email addresses in this directory are un-hyperlinked and have an extra space in them.  To use the email address: cut-and-paste the address and delete the space before the @ symbol.  For those of you with honorable intentions we are sorry for the inconvenience in communicating with these fine organizations.

The International Bicycle Fund is an independent, non-profit organization. Its primary purpose is to promote bicycle transportation. Most IBF projects and activities fall into one of  four categories: planning and engineering, safety education, economic development assistance and promoting international understanding. IBF's objective is to create a sustainable, people-friendly environment by creating opportunities of the highest practicable quality for bicycle transportation. IBF is funded by private donation. Contributions are always welcome and are U.S. tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.

Please write if you have questions, comment, criticism, praise or additional information for us, to report bad links, or if you would like to be added to IBF's mailing list. (Also let us know how you found this site.)
