Upcycled Makers Market - It is what you make it
Your contributions will go to fund the development and operations of Upcycled Makers Market and to support our mission.
There is an increasing number of reusable items going into landfills. Upcycled Makers Market diverts reusable items, uses them to fill the need of supplies and materials for artists, makers and facilitators, while developing opportunities for creative reuse, expression, healing through art, community camaraderie and environmental stewardship.
We intend to use funds for the following:
- Filing fees for nonprofit status
- Costs related to acquiring location including rent and remodel
- Branding and marketing materials for collaboration opportunities with local art and environmental advocacy-based organizations
- A vehicle and two bicycles for sourcing materials and outreach
