Funding and Spending

We are dependent on the generosity of donors.

Our main funding needs are :

  • Low cost admission
  • Operations
  • Scholarships for low income students to attend programs
  • Short term mikro grants for college graduates, young professional and artists to design creative and educational features to further enrich our teaching environment

Why micro grants? We are willing to be a hub for makers and are seeking many diverse collaborators and innovators to choose their level of contribution . In tendering mikro grants we are reaching out to a variety of artists, scholars, and engineers, inviting them to make a substantial work contribution here. For example, we are offering a small grant to an engineering student who could build a geothermal air conditioner, and another grant to an artist who could create a depiction of an overburdened ecological system.
