In order to make Xerocraft self-sustaining we need to recruit a number of regular, dues-paying members who feel as passionately as we do about creating and inventing. We are not a commercial enterprise looking to return a fat profit to some investors. Your donations go straight to paying rent and other expenses first and then to new materials and equipment. We are an all-volunteer operation without any paid staff. We are committed to putting in the work necessary to get things going and meet the needs of Tucsonan makers and hackers.
To become a regular contributing member come on down, get involved and fill out the membership form. We always encourage more members. Our big goal is to have so many members that we can to move to a larger space to accommodate a 24/7 operation with a lot more tools and resources.
We look forward to your involvement!
