The Sleigh Riders Motorcycle Toy Run is a 501(c)3 so your donation is 100% tax deductible and goes towards a great cause. All monies raised go directly to helping the kids in the Santa Cops program; there are no administrative fees at all. The Board of Directors all volunteer their time and services along with toys and cash donations like anyone else. There are two ways the money is used:
- A large portion will be earmarked for our newly formed scholarship fund, or "Sleigh Rides" as we call them. The "Sleigh Rides" will help kids attend a Colorado College of their choice who might not be able to do so otherwise. Our hopes are that we can provide full "Sleigh Rides" (full rides) to at least one young adult from both Weld and Larimer counties.
- A portion of the money will also be used to buy higher end gifts for the teens in the Santa Cops program. Our toy runs bring in thousands of toys each year but they are typically for younger children since they are more affordable. But we know the teens today in the program, up to 17, want what everyone other teen has and those are the digital and gaming gifts. ie, iPods, MP3 player, Xbox and PS3 games etc. So we are working with local department stores on matching donations for these higher end gifts.
To donate please feel free to use our secure PayPal link or for larger donations or questions please send them to "Sleigh Riders" P.O. Box 336504 Greeley, CO 80633
