IBF is 100%
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. )

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.
