Fundraising for MicroBike is a great way to get involved in Accion's work and to spread awareness about microfinance. The funds you raise make our mission, to give people the financial tools they need to improve their lives, possible. Now more than ever, your support is needed to reach the millions of people who could benefit from access to quality financial services.

As a thank you for your hard work, top individual fundraisers can earn prizes- take a look at the impact you can make on the lives of entrepreneurs by raising $150, $500, $100 or $10,000, and then see what prizes you can earn!
