The Countdown to Maker Faire Bay Area is On!


Make: Money fundraising program

Make: Money fundraising program

At the NYC FIRST Robotics Competition this past weekend, we launched an exciting new program to allow FIRST robot teams, and any other group or club, to raise funds by selling subscriptions to MAKE. Here’s how it works:

  • You email your contact information to (see details on the card above).
  • We send your group a fundraising kit with subscription forms.
  • You return the forms and subscription payments to us.
  • We send you back a monthly check for 50% of all your sales.

Your team or club gets $17 for every subscription sold! And as an added incentive, the top team salesperson gets a $50 Maker Shed Gift Certificate!

We’re really excited by this. We think it’s a great way to capitalize worthy tech, science, civic, and social organizations, while expanding our subscriber base. If you participate, please tell us about your team/club/group in the comments and how much money you were able to raise.

    I sent an e-mail to the e-mail address listed and haven’t gotten a reply yet. Just wondering if someone could reply to me. I’d love to participate in this program.

      I spoke with Heather, who’s coordinating this and she should have responded to you by now.

      We have the preliminary packets ready to go out and the kinks should be worked out of the system, so if others are interested in participating in this program, send your email requests to the address in the post and we’ll get you started.
