B4R – Funding

How Bikes for Refugees is resourced and funded.

Bikes for Refugees aims to be self-funding. It does not receive grants or funding from State or Federal government.

Bikes for Refugees depends on volunteer mechanics – who donate their time free of charge, to check and service bikes.

Our raw materials – secondhand bikes and parts –  are donated by members of the public.

Income comes from sale of some surplus bikes or parts. Some also comes from donations from the public, for use of workshop facilities.

These funds run the workshop. Any extra goes to help refugees and asylum seekers – in accord with our charitable aims.

Conservation Council of SA  support us by providing work space at their Joinery precinct, at low cost.

Our annual report contains an audited financial statement. Financial  Information  is also  reported annually to the SA Govt Office of Business and Consumer Services, and Australian Charities & Not-for-Profits Commission, and can be obtained from their websites.
