Fund WABA’s Commuter Seminar Program
Last week, we posted our year-end appeal letter on our blog (WABA members and supporters may have also received the appeal via surface mail in the past few weeks). This week, we’re reposting descriptions of the projects we hope to fund through your donations for 2014; we asked for $30,000 to fund entirely and we have currently raised $13,646 thanks to your generous donations. Make a tax-deductible donation to WABA right now and make our advocacy, education, and outreach dreams a reality! Today, read about our commuter seminar program, which requires $5,000 to run smoothly. For the past three years, WABA has provided lunchtime commuter seminars to area offices, during which a WABA staffer visits a workplace and gives an interactive presentation. Commuter seminars provide employees everything they need to know to start biking to work. These sessions are incredibly successful at helping people overcome barriers to biking for transportation. As biking grows, the demand for these seminars has outpaced our ability to deliver them without a funding source for the staff time involved, and it’s hard to enlist volunteer support midday on weekdays. Estimated need to continue our commuter seminars: $5,000. Donate now!
