Our Fundraising Campaign
In order to create new programming and community outreach, to better serve our growing membership, and to introduce a larger group of people to the skills of making things, we have moved to a much larger building on the former Oscar Mayer campus! It’s an exciting time, and this space is not only wonderful to work in, but allows us to create many more opportunities for youth at risk, laid-off workers needing new skills, and others. We have so many ideas…
That said, renovating this space and adding new programming requires a significant investment. We are boot-strapping as much as we can, adding our members’ considerable expertise and donated time to the renovations and teaching load. We have been saving for several years for these costs, but this has exceeded our savings.
So we are turning to the community, to those that know us already, and those who just like the idea of a community workshop, with free access by the public, and education designed to lift up people from all walks of life. We hope that you consider adding your donation to this effort, and sharing the idea with your networks. Spreading the word really helps this campaign grow!
