Give money. Or bikes. Or parts. Or time.

There are many ways to become involved and support the community at FCW. One way is to make a donation. FCW is structured to provide benefit to Columbus and its residents rather than to turn a profit, which is why we need your help.

FCW is in the process of expanding our operations and is in need of financial resources to meet the needs of the neighborhood. Tools and infrastructure are expensive, but a co-op’s effectiveness lies in its completeness and organization. If the shop lacks either characteristic, it won’t be good for anybody.

If you believe in the mission of FCW and want to support one (or all) of our many charitable programs, please consider making a donation today or set up a repeating donation to keep the gears turning. Thanks!



FCW also depends on donated bicycles. These bicycles are an invaluable resource at the shop and will be used in either our Earn-a-Bike program for the homeless and working poor, or for sale to supplement shop expenses. We also appreciate the donation of bike helmets, locks, lights and any other bike component or accessory you may want to donate. We hope to make these much needed accessories available to those who can’t normally afford them. By volunteering, people will earn store credit which can be traded in for anything in the shop. You may drop off donations any Saturday between 1 and 5 PM or any Tuesday between 6:30 and 9 PM. Please direct any questions to

You can also view our WishList on, and purchase supplies we need to ship directly to the shop.



And of course, we could always use your donated time! Consider becoming a volunteer at FCW after being trained in bike repair. Or participate in one of our community event nights to lend a hand with a particular project.
