Spring fundraising campaign a success: Thank you, donors!
Our spring campaign ended on May 31st and, thanks to our tremendous donors, we raised a grand total of $12,346 in just over a month.
Our campaign kicked off on April 27th with Building Momentum, a party in the shop where we presented our new strategic vision for the next three years. We raised a whopping $5,497 that evening alone, thanks in no small part to two $1,000 matching donations made by Portland Design Works and Swanson, Thomas, Coon & Newton.
The campaign continued both online and in our shop throughout the month of May. Thanks to the generosity of our shop customers and the power of social networking, we exceeded our ambitious $10,000 goal during our first paperless campaign.
Thank you again to everyone who supported us this spring, and those of you that have provided continuing support over the years. You are investing in safer streets, healthier families, and a more inclusive bicycling economy and culture and we could not do this work without you.
