Question Sponsor/support rider(s)

[[mods: I wasn't sure where to post this, please feel free to move if there's somewhere else more appropriate]]

Long story short: I'd like to sponsor/support someone's riding dream and at the same time tidy up my own finances ( as best I can ). Basically I'd like to make a tax deductible donation to an individual (or organization that helps individuals realize their riding/traveling dreams). Finding someone to donate to isn't super difficult, but the tax deductible part is harder to find. Does anyone know of someone/something to donate to that would also be tax deductible?

Those are definitely on the radar. I'd love to be able to help an individual fulfill his/her dream trip. Maybe I need to start my own ADV sponsorship non-profit ;)

I think Riders for health http://www.riders.org/ might fit your criteria. I have participated in a couple fundraisers for this group and deem it worthy of support.

If you want/need/require a tax deduction, the individual or group must be a 501(c) ... that said, almost no rider will have this legal distinction.

Good luck.

The Ted Simon Foundation might fit the bill.

We're two doctors riding from Argentina to Alaska for charity - Doctors without borders and Kind Cuts for Kids. Our trip is being made into a documentary as well, with all the proceeds being donated to charity, we are in desperate need of sponsorship for our trip as well as for our charities. We are in the process of setting up a donation portal which should make all donations tax deductible as well.

The money will go towards a great cause as well as help us fulfill our dream ride-
