These resources are available to help you understand and promote your Beneficiary status. Beneficiary Partners are listed on every Climate Ride event (except Glacier Ride and Special Funders Events), so you should always promote all events in your outreach. Your supporters can come to our website and choose the event that they would like to participate in to support you. For those organizations who are not on the Beneficiary Partner list, your supporters will just need to select Reserved for Special Circumstances (RFSC) when they register.
If you have any questions or don’t see what you’re looking for, please e-mail Caeli or Mackenzie.
Below, you’ll find sample language, images, logos, and photos you are welcome to customize. You’re welcome to use any of the text below word for word if you’d like! Outreach takes a variety of forms and your organization knows what makes the most sense for you – maybe it’s an email from a team member, maybe it’s an Instagram campaign (@Climate_Ride). We hope these resources will help you with whatever you choose.
If you decide to organize training rides, group fundraisers, form a team or host an informational session (details below), you’ll have fresh and fun content to reach out to your audience with.
And if there’s something you wish was here, please reach out and we will do our best to make it.
For a refresher on how we calculate grants or other program-related questions, please review this document. It’s a good idea to revisit it once a year as we update it regularly. It serves as the primary source outlining Climate Ride’s Beneficiary Programs.

Beneficiary Outreach Kit
Want help recruiting a team, making a presentation about Climate Ride to your coworkers or network? Look no further! Our recruitment page has everything you’ll need!
Please note: It is not required that you set up a team. Your organization can only set up a team if you have a designated participant who will captain the team. Be sure to review the Beneficiary Overview and the Climate Ride FAQ if you need a refresher on how teams work.
Thanks to the support of Climate Riders and our donors, we have non fundraising spots available to recognize members of your community. We prioritize individuals who identify as Black, Indigenous and/or People of Color, low-income, young women, and LGBTQ+ for these awards. Climate Ride Beneficiary Partners can recommend Community Leaders. If you think a member of your community would be a good candidate for a Community Leader Award, please e-mail Caeli or Mackenzie or invite them to apply via the form.
Community Leader Award FAQ and Application
CASBA has benefitted greatly from our partnership with Climate Ride; thank you for all you’ve done for us, and so many others. For our organization, it’s funded getting various forms of straw building into the building code, and the Green Fondo funded our initiative to make it easier to insure buildings featuring straw for insulation.
Bio-based materials are lowering the embodied carbon of our buildings, and with their widespread use buildings can be the Earth’s sixth carbon sink. As we like to say: ‘Build Shelter – Not Too Big – Mostly Plants!’
