To donate a bike please consider using one of our established drop off locations listed on the current collection schedule or our list of bike shop partners. Bikes for the World also accepts donations during scheduled volunteer sessions at our warehouse. You can see the dates and times for those opportunities on the volunteer calendar.
Below are alternative options managed by volunteers. Please be respectful by scheduling with the individuals listed below before dropping off a bike. We still ask that you consider making a financial donation either with the volunteer, who will issue you a receipt, or you can make a donation anytime online.
If you cannot find a location or time that is convenient you can contact Bikes for the World by email or by calling (703) 740-7856 to inquire about other options.
