A Powerful Shift for Biking in Baltimore

We elected majority new city council. With them, we’ve introduced a nationally recognized complete streets ordinance and amended fire code to reflect best practices in other cities. Construction has begun on our Downtown Bicycle Network. We got the Maryland Avenue cycle track built. And, we ensured the city’s launch of a dockless vehicle pilot was responsible and equitable.

These things 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.

+ Make a Charitable Donation

Charitable donations can only fund our education, organizing, and programming, but may be 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.
