Supporting Our Community
1% of ALL Sales Benefit our Nonprofit Partners!
Second Gear is proud to be an integral part of our Asheville outdoor community. Being consignment based, we rely heavily on locals as partners in our business, and we strive to give back to the community in many ways. In addition to participating in local fundraisers, hosting adoption days with Brother Wolf Animal Rescue, and donating to numerous raffles and silent auctions, we also choose a select number of nonprofit organizations to be our nonprofit of the month.
In addition to being featured on our website, our nonprofit of the month is showcased in-store and in our local advertisements, is invited to hold an event at our store, and receives as a direct donation a percentage of the sales for the month.

This Month's Featured Nonprofit
GlobalBike is a non-profit organization working with women's cooperatives to grow businesses that make bicycles affordable and accessible for rural, low-income populations in Northern Tanzania.
Women who usually earn between $54-$58 per month via small business projects reported 25-57% increases in monthly income when they used a bike to transport goods instead of walking or paying for transportation.
