There are many ways in which individual members of the community can and do support El Grupo.
1. We ride your old stuff!! We accept any and all donations cycling related that can be of use to our youth participants. In fact, the good-will of our community has enabled us to get as many kids on bikes as we have because of their donated bicycles, parts, cycling gear, clothing, etc. Please contact us about how to get your donations to us and to get a Tax Receipt for your tax-deductible contributions. We reserve the right to determine the best use of your donations – anything we cannot directly use we either donate to BICAS or sell at local bike swap meets.
2. We need quality adults to help with on the road safety in numbers, mentoring and coaching. We have protocol – expectations and benefits – for three different levels of involvement. The first level is as guest rider. The second is a commitment to being an assistant coaching (3-5 hrs/wk). And the third level is a real commitment to being a coach (6-10hrs/wk). All El Grupo Coaches are or are becoming Level III Certified Coaches by USA Cycling.
3. We put every dollar you donate directly into providing quality programming for our youth. You can find that “Donate” button on any page of our here website, or you can always send checks to our mailing address: 23 W 4th Street, Tucson, AZ 85705. Again, we will gladly send you a Tax Receipt and warm Thank You in return.
