Help Us Put on the Best Free Event Possible!
We want to keep the Asheville Maker Faire free for anyone to attend so no one is excluded from the fun! That means we rely on sponsorships and donations to pay the costs of the Faire. The Asheville Makers is 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, so donations may be tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.
The Asheville Maker Faire is being organized by an all-volunteer committee, so 100% of your donation (other than transaction fees) goes towards direct expenses of the Faire.
By making even a small donation, you can help. How small? Even $1, $3, or $5 helps! How can $1 really help, you ask?
- Every dollar helps! And a lot of $1 donations helps a lot.
- Through February 28, a donor has agreed to match individual donations up to a total of $1,000, so your donation can be doubled!
- Being able to say we have X people already registered to attend and Y people who have donated money to support the Faire helps us show corporate sponsors that there is tremendous community support for the Asheville Maker Faire. So please, register to attend today, and if you can afford even a dollar or two (or 5 or 10 or 20!), please donate when you register or by using the form below (this form will work for credit cards or your PayPal account). If you prefer a check, you can mail that to us at the address below, or drop off checks and cash in person.
Thank you for supporting the Asheville Maker Faire!
