How We Do It

Over 397,122 kids are living without permanent families. Most foster homes are without the resources to provide recreational activities. This is where onbikes comes in. Since 2011, onbikes has built and donated over 3,500 bicycles to children in need. We work along side city officials, family service organizations, corporate and community partners to raise funds to make our mission of bringing bicycles to kids a reality. Here’s how we do it…

Selecting Partners

We work to create meaningful partnerships with organizations that support our mission. There are many ways to collaborate with onbikes. Event participation, sponsorship, volunteering, or hosting a Corporate Bike Build are just a few ways to get involved.

Raising Funds

With the support of our partners, onbikes works to raise funds through the Winter Wonder Ride; Corporate Bike Builds and by developing additional strategic fundraising campaigns throughout the year. These funds go towards the purchase of brand new bicycles and helmets for at-risk and foster kids.

Needs Assessment

We work with local governments, in particular, police and fire departments as well as our network of community partners to determine the number of bikes and helmets needed and where they will go.

The Build

Hundreds of volunteers and partners gather to assemble the bikes. The community comes together for a day of fun and goodwill as each bike is built piece by piece. Quality assurance is provided by on-site bike technicians to guarantee each child receives a safe set of wheels.
