Fundraising is one of the most important elements of Bike MS. Remember: Each cyclist is required to raise at least $300. The majority of cyclists go above and beyond the fundraising minimum. Join the majority of cyclists and go above and beyond that minimum. Help us reach our goal and click here to see our progress. All donations to the National MS Society are tax-deductible. 

Fundraising is as easy as 1, 2, 3...
Follow these simple steps:

Step #1 -- Know your networks
Make a list of every person you know -- friends, family, neighbors, acquaintances, alumni and business associates. You have just created your donor list. Need extra help? Use the Know Your Networks worksheet (pdf).

Step #2 -- Set your fundraising goal
Now that you know your networks, set your goal.  The requirement for all City to Shore cyclists is $300, but based on your networks can you achieve VIP status at $1,000? Keep an attainable goal in mind. Once you’ve settled on your goal, make sure to log into your account and update it. There is always an opportunity to adjust your goal throughout the Bike MS season.

Step #3 -- Share your commitment and make a plan
Now your fundraising can begin. Many think the ASK can be difficult, but it's easier if you tell everyone why you are doing what you are doing. Articulate why you are taking on City to Shore. The excitement is contagious and your story will inspire others. Your commitment and passion will be the reason they choose to give you a donation. Use the fundraising tools below to help you.
