Rider in California cruising downhill

Beneficiaries

One of the things that makes Climate Ride such an effective charitable event is that you can select the organization(s) you wish to fundraise for from our extensive list of more than 100 beneficiary organizations. Our beneficiaries were selected for their work on environment, conservation, clean energy, sustainability, climate education, or active transportation advocacy. At the end of the year, Climate Ride tallies the proceeds from all Climate Ride events and then grants the funds to these hard-working organizations. 

Participants can choose from the more than 100 incredible beneficiaries listed below!
