Donations from funds generated by the Freedom Rally must, according to Club bylaws, support local children's charitable causes. Since 1989, the Club has donated $47,217 plus one electric wheelchair to various causes.

In addition to monetary donations, the Freedom Riders have also donated 1,022.5 volunteer hours to the Special Olympics by supplying security at the Olympic Villages. We have also put in volunteer time providing security for such events as the Big Snow Squall Snowmobile Racing Spectacular, Muscular Dystrophy Summerfest and the National and Provincial Boxing Tournaments at the Ontario National Boxing Academy in Azilda.
