This page outlines the guidelines for accepting and managing donations at Bellingham Makerspace. We appreciate your support and contributions to our creative community. Please read the following carefully to ensure that your donation aligns with our needs and capabilities.
Please note: Donations can only be accepted in person by the operations manager or an area lead. Donations that are not delivered directly to the operations manager or an area lead will not be accepted (read: unceremoniously put in the dumpster), and the donor will not be issued a tax receipt.
Donations we will accept
We welcome donations of items that are in good working order and align with our objectives. Acceptable donations include:
Donations we will not accept
We cannot accept the following items:
While we generally accept items in working order, we may make an exception for non-functional 3D printers. Donations of non-functional 3D printers are accepted as they can provide valuable learning opportunities and projects for our community.
Donations can be dropped off during our regular operating hours. Please check our website or contact our staff for the most up-to-date information on drop-off times.
Tax receipts are available upon request. Please notify our staff if you require a tax receipt for your donation.
Right of refusal
Bellingham Makerspace reserves the right to refuse any donation for any reason. We appreciate your understanding and support in ensuring that our makerspace receives items that contribute positively to our community.
