The foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit and is the first foundation of its kind in the country.  Donations are tax-deductible.

The Everybody Rides Metro foundation was created by the Southwest Ohio Regional Transit Authority board of trustees and received its 501(c)(3) status in September 2006. The foundation is a non-profit organization and is not part of SORTA or Metro.
