DONATE A BIKE (TORONTO)

Bikes Without Borders accepts donated bicycles - in good condition - of all shapes and sizes (tricycles excepted). 

Bicycle donations are currently being refurbished and matched with Syrian family sponsor groups, social service organizations such as Culturelink, local shelters and the TDSB. Sporadically we send bicycles abroad as well through partners like World Vision, Canserra, the Salvation Army and the Rotary Clubs of Canada.

BWB works out of a TDSB school which has a policy around people coming and going from the premises, so if you are interested in donating your bike please read the information below in full.

BEFORE YOU DONATE A BIKE, PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING:

  1. Please do not call us about donating your bike(s). Read the information below.

  2. To drop off a donation you will need to contact our location staff prior to arrival (contact info below). Staff usually are on site Tuesday 9 am to 1 pm and Thursday 9 am to 4 pm, but please contact us to confirm (See below). If you are able to drop them off during that time please let them know the day and rough time you might arrive or ask about additional times.

  3. If you are unable to make those times please let us know by completing the form at the bottom of this page.

  4. We would like to avoid bikes that are rusty/broken - the seized parts are too costly for our organization to repair. 

  5. We do not pick up bicycles (sorry, we just don't have the resources to do so).  If you have a large number of bicycles to donate and are in the Greater Toronto area we may be able arrange a vehicle rental to pick them up. 

  6. Upon request, we are happy to offer a $25 tax-deductible receipt for each donation of a bicycle in fair to good condition.
