Donations and Dues

Unallocated Space is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. We strive to serve the local hacker and maker community by providing a place where people can learn new skills, build cool projects, and meet like-minded people. Unlike most hackerspaces, all of our events, classes, and workshops are completely open to the general public for free. We have continued to serve the community in this manner for over four years thanks to our many generous donors. We do offer some perks to our recurring donors as follows:

  • $25/month gets you secure, unthrottled WiFi and access to the VM lab.
  • $50/month gets you a box to store your projects at the space*, 2U of rackspace in our server rack**, and a locker*.
  • $100/month makes you eligible to become a keyholder** and gets you a project box*, 2U of rackspace**, and a locker*.

*May be limited by availability.
**See a keyholder for terms.

    I have an Onkyo receiver whose volume cuts in and out. Is that a worthwhile donation?
