We are grateful for any amount – no contribution is too small!
SOMA NJ 3D Printers Alliance is a group of volunteers united by a cause, not a formal not-for-profit organization. We are collaborating with Achieve Foundation of South Orange and Maplewood, a 501(c)3 organization, who are able to issue tax deductible receipts for donations of $250 and higher made after 4/22/2020. If you are planning to donate $250 or more and would like a tax deductible receipt, please go to their donation page , check "other" and enter "3D Printer Alliance" in the note. ALL of the funds will pass through to us.
Thank you all for your support and generosity. Please keep spreading the word. We can only do this with the community support!
LET'S GET THROUGH THIS TOGETHER! #flattenthecurve
