Fundraising for the Bergen Bike Tour Made Easy on Firstgiving

Attention Bergen Bike Tour riders – we’ve made it easy for you to fulfill your pledge obligation!

With the Bergen Bike Tour just around the corner, riders and volunteers alike are preparing to raise money for the Volunteer Center. Each individual rider at the Bergen Bike Tour is asked to raise a minimum of $100 and families are asked to raise $200. Technology has made it easier for riders to ask their friends and family members for donations through email, online giving, and social networking sites.

This year, many riders have set up Firstgiving Donation Pages to solicit donations. This is the second year the Volunteer Center is using Firstgiving; based on enthusiastic response last year, we anticipate even more riders will set up a page this year.

To find out more about how to set up and use a Firstgiving page, here are some you can take a look at:
