Philanthropy – 2012

A report of how the Davis Bike Club distributed philanthropy funds in 2012

About one third of our philanthropy budget goes to supporting DBC members participating in charity fund raising rides. The remaining two thirds is divided among a variety of local charity organizations. The total philanthropy budget for 2012 was $5000.00.

DBC contributed to a number charity rides on behalf of member/riders in 2012. These included Tour de Cure, NorCal AIDS, AIDS/LifeCycle, Livestrong, The Arthritis Foundation, Team in Training, and others. During 2012, the DBC Board of Directors added $1000.00 to the philanthropy budget to support The Life Academy’s student tour, and another $ 250.00 to support the Tour de Cluck.
