The best way to support the Fallen Heroes' Ride Across America is by choosing to donate to one of our designated charities.
In the past few years, several non-profit organizations have been created to address the challenges facing our disabled veterans and their families. While the US government is still responsible for veterans' affairs, these organizations are playing a critical role in providing services and resources that the government is not able to handle on its own.
Many of these organizations rely exclusively on private donations and the generosity of concerned Americans. If you would like to donate, please consider one of the charitable foundations listed below. The preferred method is to donate directly to the fund of your choice via their website links. Alternatively, if you would like to pledge a certain amount per mile, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If donating online, please indicate in the appropriate box or comments section that your donation is in support of Bike4Vets or Fallen Heroes' Ride Across America. If donating by mail, please indicate this on the memo section of your check.
If you work for a company with a matching gifts program, check with your employer to see if these charities qualify under that program. Matching donations can effectively double the value of your contribution.
ALL of the following charities are not-for-profit organizations under Section 501(c)(3) of the IRS code. Donations are tax deductible. A receipt will be provided to you for tax purposes.
Please also email me to let me know you have donated. Your name will be listed on our page of donors unless you prefer to remain anonymous.
Thank you very much for your contribution!
