Twin Cities Maker is a community group dedicated to Making, Sharing, and Learning. We run the "Hack Factory" a makerspace in Minneapolis.
We've completed $600 in matching grants so far, for a total of $1500 as of 7:40PM! Can we break $2000? Are you willing to pledge a matching grant? Email email@example.com to set one up, we've got $100 pledged if (3) other folks will step up for $50!
Our mission is to support the local community of makers, hacker, tinkerers and artists and provide opportunity for them to share their passions by providing support, facilities, equipment and opportunities for them to Make anything they want, Share their work, and Learn from other like minded individuals.
The anchor for this mission is our facility, the "Hack Factory." This community workshop or makerspace (aka hackerspace) is located in the Seward neighborhood of Minneapolis. It offers classroom, and meeting spaces as well as shops that provide members the opportunity to practice myriad crafts and skills, and teach classes.
We strive to offer a comprehensive wood, metal, electronics and most anything workshop to our members, and allow access to these shops to the public through member led workshops and classes. We are starting to expand our outreach by hosting mini-makerspaces at events and hope to offer more programming out in the community in the near future.
We are committed to maintaining our facility's basic operating budget through membership dues, however upgrades to our facility and our community outreach programs are supported by donations. We accept certain tools and materials as donations, as well as financial gifts.
This page fundraises for our general fund for ongoing projects outreach and improvements . As individual projects and goals arise, targeted pages will describe those goals.
