Vote for your favorite charity by selecting them below. If you do NOT see your favorite charity, please write them in where it says “other” then wait (usually within a day or two) for them to be added to the list. Then you can contact supporters of that charity and encourage them to vote for the charity. Please do NOT ask everyone you know to “write in” the same charity. We check for new charities and add them (alphabetically) to the list almost every day.
Please use the form below to nominate a person or organization to be the fourth recipient.
Eligibility: Only 501(c)3 Charities and nonprofit organizations are eligible to receive funds distributed to the top three levels for each ride. If your favorite organisation is not on the list of organizations to vote for, you can write them in under the “other” space. Please only do this if you know that they meet the eligibility requirements. If they do not, you can still nominate them for the “Little Engine that Could” cause and they will be considered for that portion of the proceeds. All organizations that finish first, second or third in the voting must provide proof of their status (IRS Form 990). In the event that an organization cannot provide the necessary proof, they will only receive the amount equal to the “Little Engine that Could” contribution. Any balance would be equally distributed between qualifying charities that are receiving funds. Read below for a detailed explanation of the distribution of funds. Once an organization receives funds, they must wait one year to be eligible again.
All money raised through this ride will be distributed in the following manner:
50% of the proceeds will be donated to the charity with the most votes.
25% of the proceeds will be donated to the charity with the second most votes.
15% of the proceeds will be donated to the charity with the third most votes.
10% of the proceeds will go to a charity (or cause) that may not get many votes but needs the help. This “Little Engine that Could” cause will be selected by the riders on the day of each event. This could be a small (relatively) unknown charity, a family in need in our community or even an individual who has fallen on hard times due to sickness or injury. “Little Engine that Could” recipient does not have to be an official charity or nonprofit organization, but will be screened before being considered as one of the organisations to be voted on by the riders. Organizations who are receiving funds in one of the top three categories will not be eligible in this category.
