Our reason for filing for non-profit status was to use that to leverage both material and financial donations, with the hopes that we may also find someone that had a building to rent to us for a minimal cost.
Our founding circle dissolved and we started our official board. I became the president, Harley as VP and 2 new additions Angela as Secretary and Kaci as Digital Committee chair. Kami Wilt continues on with us as our Project Committee chair. (She recently started Austin Tinkering School and is bringing the Maker Faire back to Austin.)
During this stage of our organizations development we have started to participate in events to let more people know about our organization. We plan to do a fundraising campaign that will be empowered through our community connections.
