    I am interested in making a donation and would like to know how much of the donation is actually applied to the cost of the bike. It seems lately you hear of many non profits where only 5 – 10 cents on the dollar actually gets applied to the “cause”. Look forward to hearing back from you.

      David,
      Fair question! I am always surprised at how little actually goes to the cause itself. We are doing this ourselves and have no real overhead. We do have some expenses of running such as website, hosting, fees etc. But to date of the $6000 or so we have raised in all we have spent less than 14% of that on expenses other than bikes and some of those expenses are purchases such as the Christmas Tree ornaments that will be for sale on our site this week. Most of that money is in the bank waiting for little guys to apply for bikes! We are doing our best to put as much of the money as possible toward the cause and NOT toward infrastructure, but you must spend some to be successful. If you send a check there are no fees on your contribution. If you choose to contribute online there are fees depending on which card you choose to use. there is an option to absorb the fee yourself or have it taken out of your donation. either way works for us. We are in the process of switching to another service other than paypal with lower fees, but being a one lady show it is a slow process.

      I hope this answers your question. Feel free to email me or call me if you would like more info!
