This page is for listing suggestions and ideas for in-kind donations for us to ask for.

Donation Ideas

For example, with the recent expansion, some donations we could ask big box stores like Home Depot, Lowe's Home Improvement, and CostCo for:

  • paint, for lots of uses, for walls, for shelving ew construct, etc
  • floor paint for concrete floors, i.e. the "dirty" shop area
  • shelving for the storage room; all three of the examples above have these
  • plastic bins for better storage/organization
  • doors, do we need any?
  • light fixtures (for both sides), Costco has these too
  • flooring/floor coverings of some sort for the "clean" side
  • materials/etc for dividing walls
  • glass for big windows in the dividing walls

Possible Donors

Just a short list of companies that might be worth inquiring to.

  • Home Depot
  • Lowe's Home Improvement
  • CostCo
  • Harbor Freight

Of course, when you start talking about serious donations, the sky's the limit. Which isn't to say we'll get them, but it may be worth pursuing:

  • Sawstop
  • Tool manufacturers (Bosch, Fein, etc)
  • Electronics manufacturers
    • Components
    • AV equipment (video cameras, etc)


If you're uncertain about whether or not to add a suggestion, or wish to comment on priority, etc, please append it here and I'll merge it into the main body of the page.
