Partners

We’d love to partner with you!

You or your organization can partner with us to organize an event or activity that encourages walking, biking, and transit! You can also request a Go Garfield Park Outreach Ambassador to table or speak at your event geared towards East and West Garfield Park residents.

If you are interested in partnering with Go Garfield Park, please email Maggie at Maggie@activetrans.org.

How your organization can get involved:

  • Spread the word about Go Garfield Park events via social media and/or your e-newsletter.
  • Organize a biking or walking event with us!
  • Invite an Ambassador to your community meeting or festival where they can tell residents about the campaign.
  • Donate snacks or supplies such as apples, bananas, coffee, or raffle prizes for an event.
  • Donate space for a workshop (such as a bike safety basics or bike mechanics workshop).
  • Pass out or provide coupons that we can give to event participants.
  • Offer a shop discount to all event participants if an event ends at your business.
  • Donate your bike mechanic skills at an event or during a community workshop.
  • Order a free Go Kit full of biking, walking, and transit resources, plus a free gift (t-shirt, water bottle, or bicycle bell). We want everyone in the community to have one.

What benefits will you receive?

  • Gain more community exposure. If you are involved in an event, you’ll gain more exposure in the community:
    • We’ll include you in one of our printed calendar posters and mailed newsletters sent to 10,000 households (as long as your involvement is established two months prior to the event).
    • We’ll tag you on social media posts and photos.
    • We’ll mention you in our weekly emails sent to Go Garfield Park participants.
  • We can speak to residents at events about your organization.
  • We can include you in one of our business and community partner spotlights on Facebook.
  • We can send an Ambassador to one of your meetings to provide a workshop on safe bicycling.
  • Communities with more active transportation users see improved economic development, more lively/safer streets, and healthier community members.
