How do I make a donation?
Most of our Donors give online via credit card but there are several ways you can donate:
Cash: We encourage you, if possible, to bring cash donations to our office and put them
into the dropbox located outside the door of Pelotonia HQ. Another alternative is to mail
the cash to our gift processing facility.
Check: To mail a check, please complete our online donation form and select “Check”
under “Payment Information.” This will create a pledge in our system. After clicking
“submit,” please print the invoice screen that appears (or your confirmation email) and
mail this, along with your check made out to Pelotonia, to our gift processing facility.
Donor Advised Fund: Ask the administrator of your fund to issue a check payable to
Pelotonia (Federal Tax-ID 82-4997087). A note of instruction should be included and the
name of the participant or Peloton you wish to support. If you have a DAF through
Fidelity Charitable, Schwab Charitable or BNY Mellon, you may use the tool on the
Donor-Advised Fund page on our website to directly request a donation through your
IRA: If you are 70 ½ years or older, you may give up to $100,000 annually from your IRA
directly to Pelotonia, as we are a qualified organization. We recommend contacting your
IRA Administrator to discuss how to initiate the distributions. Please instruct your
administrator to make checks payable to Pelotonia. If you would like to support a
participant, please include the Rider ID on the memo line of your check, as well as your
first and last name and home address. The check will be mailed to our gift processing
