No, it would not.

Doing that would open Noisebridge up to legal action by the owner of
the bikes as well as from the Bike Kitchen volunteer whom you are
setting up for a charge of property theft.

You do not have the right to donate it, imply that it's donated, break
it, destroy it, make it more vulnerable to theft (and any reasonable
person would consider leaving a bike unlocked on the street in the
Mission basically equivalent to giving it to a thief), or anything of
the kind whatsoever.

If you don't want it in the space, you have to return it to the owner
or give it to the police. There aren't any other legal options.
