Scholarship Contributions

Scholarships encourage participation by members of underrepresented groups by covering a portion of the membership fee based on an individual's ability to pay.

Fund a Fellow

The mission of the MakeHaven fellowship is to connect local philanthropists to eager makers. Donors fund the membership and budget activities of fellows for a year. Fellows apply to MakeHaven and must demonstrate drive and capability to create something engaging during their time as a Fellow.  Fellows are required to provide monthly public update blogs on their projects. The sponsor is acknowledged in the public work of the fellow. Any amount can be donated to this program but being named as a sponsor of a fellow requires a $1,000 contribution. We are currently looking for a partner company to kickstart this program.

Employee Group Membership

Company covers the entire cost of an employee’s membership and receives a group discount after the second employee.

Equipment Sponsorship

Sponsoring entity makes a cash contribution of $1,000 or greater to cover full purchase cost of equipment which becomes the property of MakeHaven. Equipment is selected in consultation with MakeHaven staff. For the lifespan of the equipment, signage on or near the equipment will recognize the sponsor. Recognition signage scaled to equipment investment.

Company Team Building

MakeHaven has a variety of guided experiences where a group of up to 40 employees collaborate to make something amazing. The hands-on nature of these activities encourage practicing problem solving skills and the healthy exercise of interpersonal interaction outside the workplace. Activities have included: chocolate making, candle making, vinyl stencil and glass etching, concept/prototype development, laser cutting, 3d printing, simple woodworking projects and more.
