For the first time ever, Iowa’s bicycling and trail non-profit organizations are teaming up in a powerful one-day fundraising event on Tuesday, May 24, 2022. The event is called Big Bike Give and the Iowa Bicycle Coalition is hosting it. Big Bike Give is bringing together non-profit organizations that have a primary focus on bikes and trails for a day to raise awareness, share time in the spotlight, and raise funding for our missions.

The Raccoon River Valley Trail is one of the trails participating in the event. Our biggest fundraiser each year is our annual banquet, but due to COVID, we have not been to hold it for the past two years. We are hoping that the Big Bike Give will help us raise the money we need to continue to promote and improve the trail.

Donations through the Big Bike Give online portal to charitable nonprofit organizations are tax-deductible and cannot be refunded. Contributions may be made via credit and debit card only. Donations will be received and receipted by GiveGab. GiveGab is a nonprofit giving platform that helps nonprofits to raise money, engage donors and manage volunteers quickly and efficiently. Each donation made to a participating nonprofit will be disbursed directly from GiveGab via direct deposit within 5-7 business days.
