Support Ashland DEVO and youth cycling this Giving Tuesday.

Ashland DEVO is kicking off the holiday season with a Giving Tuesday fundraiser with a goal of raising $3000 before December 31st for our DEVO Scholarship Fund.

Giving Tuesday is a global generosity movement unleashing the power of radical generosity. Giving Tuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Since then, it has grown into a year-round global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.

The actual cost of one rider participating in a year of DEVO programming is approximately $500. This increases to $750 for our 6th-12th grade team riders, not including travel for races. With a donation to our scholarship fund, you can help ease the burden for those that need it the most.

In addition, all donations made through PayPal’s Giving Fund event will not be subject to any fees, when using the supplied link below. All donations are tax deductible and you’ll receive a tax donation receipt with your donation from PayPal.

This past year, DEVO awarded over $6,000 in scholarship funds – a 300% increase from just two seasons ago! Thank you to our sponsors and donors to help make sure 100% of applicants were funded this season.

Over the next few weeks, we’ll share stories of those who have directly been positively impacted by our scholarship fund and your donations. Out of all DEVO’s programs and accomplishments, we are most proud of the difference we’re making in local youth lives.

We hope you’ll feel motivated this Giving Tuesday and Holiday Season to help us fulfill our mission of inspiring wellness in our youth by building grit, resilience, and camaraderie through mountain biking.

Sincerely,

Katie Younkin

Board President, Ashland DEVO
