Inaugural Bivo Fund Allocation

Inaugural Bivo Fund Allocation: Local Motion

We are thrilled to announce our inaugural donation from the Bivo Fund has been made, going to Local Motion, a nonprofit advocate for walking, biking, and rolling in Vermont.

What is the Bivo Fund? Every year we donate 1% of all sales from both direct to consumer and wholesale sales to the Bivo Fund and contribute an additional 1% of all sales made by Bivo Pledgers, both individuals and wholesale partners who have signed the Bivo Pledge. At the end of each year, the total amount of money contributed to the fund is donated to a non-profit partner, or multiple, working in the sustainability or cycling space.

Why Local Motion? “Moving to Vermont was a big deal for us as a family and a business,” says Bivo co-founder Carina Hamel. “We wanted to thank the community for such a warm welcome and integrate ourselves further into a community we are absolutely falling in love with.”
 
Rather than choosing a specific initiative within Local Motion to fund, we decided to allow the Local Motion leeway in allocating the donation where they decide it will have the most impact. 
 
“We are grateful to Bivo for their support and will apply the funding to the programs where it will have the greatest impact for both organizations including our safety educational outreach, the  bike ferry, and our Bike Smart school programs,” stated Karen Yacos, Local Motion Executive Director.

We are excited to continue contributing to the Bivo Fund and supporting non-profit organizations in 2022 and beyond. We believe that supporting great work by nonprofits is an important part of running a business. We’re looking forward to continuing our relationships locally, as well as expanding regionally and nationally in our donations as the fund continues to grow.
