The Bicycle Kitchen is a nonprofit bicycle repair education space run by volunteers known as Cooks. We keep our space open through donations from the people who use the space. We ask for suggested donations in exchange for using our workshop or picking out a Project Bike, but we never turn anyone away for lack of funds. If you think this is as amazing as we do and can offer financial support consider donating by clicking on the PayPal link below. We are a 501c3 and can offer a Tax ID donation letter.

Donate to Re:Ciclos

Re:Ciclos is a Los Angeles-based project that recycles landfill-bound steel bicycles and redirects them into the hands of youth who redesign, re-fabricate and assemble them into cargo bicycles that are then distributed to communities, individuals, organizations and/or businesses that will use them in their everyday endeavors. Our fiscal sponsor is the Bicycle Kitchen that is a 501c3 Organization and can offer a Tax ID donation letter.

Donating Bike Parts

Another way you can contribute to help keep our doors open for others is by donating old bicycles and parts. One person's garbage is another's transportation, so clean out that garage! We can even give you a tax write off. We can use almost anything but are always looking for steel road bikes and are ALWAYS (in bold caps) looking for decent wheels.

If you would like to donate a bike or bike parts, just bring them by during our hours of operation.

We are a charitable organization so we can provide reciepts for donated goods.

We do not take solvents, paints, batteries, guns, knives or any explosive devices such as nuclear weapons.
