Benefits of belonging to the Friends of BFK include invitation to our public meetings and the opportunity to participate in our annual and special surveys to surface priority needs.  Friends of BFK also have the chance to help deliver important programs as time and interest permit.  Depending on the time of year in which BFK’s main public events take place and donations are received, current Champions Circle members (and above) will also receive recognition on our Kalamazoo (Area) Bike Week and Fall Bike Celebration Sponsor web pages, updated in the general time of year in which those events take place.  Donors wishing to contribute at levels greater than those listed above are welcome!  Please discuss your contribution with BFK’s president or fundraising chair.

This Honor Roll will be updated at least quarterly and refreshed by the end of January of each new year.  Contributions received between our Fall Bike Celebration on the third weekend of September and December 31 will be gratefully posted for the entire following year.

*Honorary sustaining members have elected to contribute monthly and are noted with an asterisk following their name.  Their level of giving is noted based on contributions received to our most recent quarterly update.  We are deeply thankful for any and all donations.

Please kindly understand that due to the evolving nature of BFK’s programs and events, our Sponsors programs and Friends benefits are subject to change without notice.

If you wish to contribute anonymously, please Write a Note where indicated on the PayPal form or in other written instructions if you mail a check.
