Our volunteers work tirelessly to enable this to be a free service for all our passengers. We do not want cost to be a prohibitive factor in experiencing the joy and inclusivity of our trishaw rides. However, for our service to remain sustainable, we need your support.
There are various ways that Cycling Without Age Chapters around Australia can be supported, either financially or by donations-in-kind.
Establishing and operating a Cycling Without Age Chapter does cost money. Currently the typical budget for operating a Cycling Without Age trishaw is between $20-25,000 in its first year (including the purchase of a trishaw) and $3-5,000 thereafter.
Note: Donations to other Chapters can be made through their own fundraising services.
Donations In Kind
There are other ways your organisation can show support for Cycling Without Age in your community. For example we have worked with:
- Organisations that donate advertising, promotion and media production services.
- Organisations that donate print production and signwriting services.
- Organisations that donate bicycle parts and/or maintenance.
- Organisations that donate COVID safe materials (disinfectants, paper towels, etc.)
- Cafes that offer free drinks to passengers and pilots are known as “Coffee friends” and qualify for a promotional sticker and identification on our social media and services map.
