2016: A Powerful Shift for Biking in Baltimore
We elected new mayor and a majority new city council. Construction has begun on our Downtown Bicycle Network, including the Maryland Avenue cycle track. And, we launched Bike Share.
These infrastructure improvements have taken far too long. That can change with new leadership, but we must educate, advocate, and organize right now.
Our entire direct action budget and much of our charitable budget is dependent on donations from people like you. Your support now is critical to building Bikemore's organizing strength and changing the trajectory of our city.
+ Make a Direct Action Donation
Direct Action donations are our greatest need. They can fund everything we do, including directly lobbying elected officials, running grassroots organizing campaigns, and advocating for or against legislation. They are not tax-deductible.

Our direct action work is through Bikemore in Action, a 501(c)(4). Our charitable work is through Bikemore, a 501(c)(3). See below for an infographic for more information on what we can do with these different tax statuses.
One last tip: unless you itemize your taxes, the charitable deduction isn't really important. Take the standard deduction? Go with a Direct Action donation.
