Empowerment Bucks


CBC shop gift certificates - Empowerment Bucks - are good for the cost of bikes/parts in our community do-it-yourself bike shop. We give Empowerment Bucks to local social service agencies who, in turn, give them to people with limited means. It's our bicycle-powered contribution to independence and community resiliency. Empowerment Bucks are distributed by:



  • Daytime Drop-In Center

  • Community Outreach

  • Willamette Neighborhood Housing Services

  • Casa Latinos Unidos

  • School Health Navigators

  • Jackson Street Youth Services

  • Love, Inc.

Many people in our community rely on bicycles for transportation to job interviews, work, school, or for exercise. Contact us or the listed organizations if you or someone you know could benefit from Empowerment Bucks.

Pop-Up Bike Shops

These are temporary bike shops to improve access to bicycling in underserved neighborhoods. Residents spend their Empowerment Bucks at our pop-up shops to get a bike, helmet and a bike light. Our inaugural Pop-Up Shops were at Lincoln Elementary and Garfield Elementary's Pantry Day. Our April 27 event is at Lancaster Bridge Apartments.

Thank you to Benton County Health Navigators, NxG Fund of Community Foundation for the Fox Valley Region, Samaritan Health Services, City of Corvallis for supporting access and equity in bicycling.
