Giving Tuesday is Tuesday, December 1—and this year, the Bicycle Coalition of Maine has found a special match.

When you donate to the BCM on Giving Tuesday, you’ll be giving in tandem, as Portland’s own Tandem Coffee Roasters will be matching each contribution to the BCM up to a total of $5,000!

Although we spend most of the year focusing on memberships, this is a chance for members and non-members alike to make a standalone donation that serves as a double-shot of espresso to fuel the Coalition’s efforts to make Maine better for biking and walking right now and as we look ahead to 2021. (Looking instead to join as a new member or renew a membership? Click here.)

This means more virtual education, more bike rodeos and skills courses, more Imagine People Here demonstrations, and more people on bikes and on foot helping to make Maine’s roadways safer.

To add an extra jolt of energy to this year’s #GivingTuesday, the BCM put together a short video about our mission and what we hope to achieve. This fun video features interviews with BCM members and partners—including some familiar faces!

We are so thankful for Tandem Coffee’s support of the BCM as we navigate all the obstacles of 2020, but there’s still room for one more on this tandem. Will you ride with us into 2021 with a matched Giving Tuesday donation to the BCM?
