As a 501(c)(3) non profit organization did you know you can support +Blacksburg Makerspace each time you shop on Amazon using Amazon Smile?

If you already use Amazon Smile here are directions to change your charitable organization.

If you often forget to use Amazon Smile here are some browser extensions to help you out: http://hacksburg.org/2016/06/27/1200-smile.html

As always we also accept PayPal, cash, check, and participate in Give Big New River Valley. We also are frequently looking for equipment so donations of equipment are also tax deductible!
