Roof Repairs for our Makerspace!

Last year, with the help from dozens of individual donors, Lowell Makes bought our own building! This incredible achievement gave us a secure, permanent home for our (small but growing) non-profit makerspace. We overcame some huge hurdles, most notably a global pandemic, to emerge stronger than ever in 2021. We are so grateful to our community for demonstrating their commitment to Lowell Makes.

Now we need your help to protect our investment. This harsh winter has exposed a few leaking spots in our membrane roof above our main warehouse. This is the part of the makerspace that contains some of our most popular shops - Cosplay, Ceramics, Paint, Plastics, Wood, Metal, Bike, and Rapid Prototyping shops. It's also the section where we just completed our new build-out. 

We want to be responsible about caring for our home and fix these leaks as soon as possible before they escalate. The total quote for repairs is $25,000. We have applied for a few grants, but need to raise matching funds on our own. We are hoping to raise $10,000 toward these repairs, and we hope you can pitch in!
