  • We can give you a receipt for any material donations which you can use for a tax deduction. If you are approved to receive a discount on membership, you can not deduct that amount.
  • We can not accept every tool offered. We would have hundreds of circular saws. Please speak to the department head before you give us something.
  • Please refer to our donation policy for accepting gifts for more details on how to give and Email [email protected] with any questions you have: Donation Policy for Gift Acceptance

I Want to ....

Yes, that's great, do it. If you think you *might* need to ask, do so, if only to avoid scheduling conflicts and the like. No ones been told “No” yet, however there have been a few “Please don't do this” things so that projects don't interfere with other members or the community. The Board of Directors is certainly *not* going to stop you from doing anything (legal) but we also don't expect every member to be familiar with every event or other project going on. This is only to be respectful of our community and other members. If you didn't ask, you might be told to move something, or alter something in a way that's more annoying than we'd like to be. (Remember, play well with others.)

Corporate Sponsorship and Gifts

  • We do appreciate and accept Corporate Donations. Please speak to our Development Coordinator or treasurer about this they can be contacted [email protected]
  • Before you solicit any gifts in our name, you must speak with our Development Coordinator. If you are aware of any grants or programs that you think we should speak with, please tell us, we may have you be the point person if it is appropriate and you are willing. This is to prevent miss-communication, redundant requests, and gifts of herds of animals.
