For the Kids in Your Community
What makes your donation to Trike different from other children’s charities? We’re building a world where every child grows up feeling they’ve been heard. Where every kid has discovered their inner spark and followed it with curiosity and passion. Where they develop the courage to be themselves, create something original and ultimately contribute to their community. Such passion and work requires support.
Every Donation Makes a Difference
Keep our kids smiling, learning and discovering their inner greatness.

Your support goes directly into a young learner’s development
Taken from us too soon at just 35, Trike’s first Education Director Gwen Edwards believed all kids deserve to find their character through plays and play. Probably just like you and your child.
Gwen envisioned and worked relentlessly for a world where every kid can discover their innerspark and chase it down with curiosity and passion. She was full of love and, sometimes, full of mischief and fun. Just like any kid, big or small.
With your help, we’ll continue her legacy of love, learning and laughter.
