September 15, 2021 — FORT COLLINS, CO – While Bike Fort Collins attained Accredited Charity Status with the Better Business Bureau (BBB) serving Northern Colorado and Wyoming in late 2020, it was officially presented with its accreditation plaque at its most recent Board of Directors meeting on September 9th. BFC met all 20 BBB Standards for Charity Accountability, which were developed to assist the community in making sound giving decisions and to foster public confidence in charitable organizations.
“We are thrilled to have been recognized by the Better Business Bureau,” said Executive Director, Dave Dixon. “Attaining our BBB Charity Accreditation is a demonstration of our commitment to excellence and hopefully helps assure the community that their donations to Bike Fort Collins are being handled in a most responsible and ethical manner.”
Only charities who meet the standards are designated as a BBB Accredited Charity. An organization must be tax exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. In addition, the BBB required BFC to provide its latest financial statements, IRS For 990 and a copy of its annual report, which are subjected to a vigorous and thorough review.
