GIVE WHERE YOU LIVE

Because living in Minnesota rules, we give back to our community with Surly Gives A Damn (SGAD). We contribute to the fine organizations that are making the North a better place to live through charitable donations, partnerships, and volunteer events. Our volunteers are a really active, passionate bunch and man do they give a damn.

Regarding Donations

Due to the unexpected circumstances of COVID-19 and how it has affected our business, we are pausing our SGAD donation programing for now. With a skeleton crew and adapting our business to constant change, we are unable to process the donation you requested at this time. Once we are back up and on our feet, we will start fulfilling donation requests. Hopefully we’ll be able to help you with your fundraising needs in the future.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Thank you for understanding.
