Giving Tuesday is here, and it’s the biggest single day of giving all year for charities, and the Iowa Bicycle Coalition is no different.

Last year’s Giving Tuesday changed what was possible for bicycle advocates in Iowa. We were able to make progress that we had been waiting on for years, thanks to an incredible show of support from bicyclists. So we’re bringing the winning elements back to the table for another big giving day.

Why is GivingTuesday such a great day to give compared to other days?

  1. There’s an incredible challenge grant of $25,000 from Fred and Charlotte Hubbell that we’ll be using to match donations.
  2. Facebook is offering their match again this year (albeit with some changes) alongside their famous no-processing-fee donations.
  3. The Iowa Bicycle Coalition has a new ambassador program where we you can earn prizes for getting your friends and family to support the Iowa Bicycle Coalition.

It’s a great time to help spread the word about bicycle advocacy in Iowa, support the great work being done to make this upcoming legislative session a success, and make Iowa the best place possible for bicycling.
