And now after 3 years at our current space on S. Rogers, we’ve learned our lease will terminate at the end of December, and we need to find a new space. Finding Bloominglabs a new space is always challenging. We raise nearly all our funds through dues and workshop fees, but being a charity, we keep those fees low. We can't afford market rent rates in Bloomington, and in the past we've been lucky to find spaces that can rent to us cheaply. The bad part about renting cheap spaces is they often need a lot of renovations and require some investment to get them to meet our needs.
We've found a couple of possible new spaces, but bringing a new space up to snuff, installing new electrical wiring and networking, putting up walls - all this requires work, knowledge, and money. Bloominglabs has the talent and energy, but we need your help with the funds. If you have been helped by Bloominglabs in the past, or if you just want to help us continue providing maker resources to our various communities, any donation will help. It all adds up, and your donation is tax deductible as well. Thanks for helping us keep a good thing going!
