Summit Bike Club is pleased to announce the launch of our new Booster Club! We have been overwhelmed by the support we have received from the community, and in order to give those who wish the opportunity to support us financially, we are starting a Patreon page!
Through the Patreon platform, you can sign up to support us with a monthly donation, and in return, we have cool prizes and rewards to give.
Our goal of spreading a passionate community around Mountain Biking is a massive effort, and the outreach programs, events, education, and content take a lot of time and effort to produce and organize. We want to bring the best experience possible to our members and the larger community, and so we are enlisting your help.
Every effort to #growMTB, from sharing a post on Facebook to supporting a loved one at a race, makes a huge difference. For those who are able, the Booster Club is an opportunity to take your support of our programs and young athletes to the next level.
So how does it work?
You can become a member of our Booster Club at one of multiple levels. The club currently has four tiers, each with different monthly pledges and rewards. You get to decide which one is the best fit for you.
Head over to the Patreon page for detailed descriptions of the different levels and their benefits!
To show our thanks, we’ve put together some awesome rewards including discounts on clothing, race entries, and sponsored products as well as member-only events and content.
What if I want/need to stop donating for any reason??
You can exit the booster club at any time: no fees, no commitments. Your chosen pledge amount will be charged via PayPal at the beginning of each month until you cancel through the system. If you do choose to stop donations, please fill out the Patron Exit Survey. It means a lot to us!
Where is my money going??
Our goal at Summit is to expand cycling education to as many developing juniors and young adults as possible. Your donations help to launch chapters in new locations, as well as improve the quality of existing programs. We use donations to help sponsor races and community events, as well as other brands and organizations which share our values.
Is my contribution tax deductible??
Yes! At least for the most part, but if you receive a physical object as part of your benefits, the cost of that will be taken from the total donation value. We will provide a letter for you at the beginning of each new year with your total donation over the year.
Can I join the Booster Club outside of Patreon??
Unfortunately no. For our ease of management, we do require all Booster Club members to be active through Patreon. If you’d rather donate one sum, and then continue on at a lower level on Patreon, we can work with you for that as well.
Do I have to be a member of Summit to join the Booster Club??
No! We want anyone, anywhere, who wants to #growMTB to be able to support this cause.
Why become a Booster Club Member??
While there are many ways to support Summit Bike Club, we feel that an online Booster Club is one of the easiest. You can fund us from anywhere in the world, at any level of commitment you choose. It also allows us to give you cool rewards to show our personal thanks for your ongoing support! We also know this is not for everyone. If you would like to help in other ways, feel free to reach out to us!
