“What do my donations go towards?”

Facilities & Equipment

Let's be real – running a hackerspace isn't cheap. There's rent and utilities, purchasing equipment, maintaining equipment, and lots of parts and supplies that we need to make Root Access a cool spot to make things.

In addition to the stuff at the hackerspace, there's also the people. Several user groups rely on the hackerspace to provide a meeting space where they can share knowledge in a friendly tech environment.

Your donation will help us pay the day-to-day and keep doing awesome things at Root Access.

Collaborating with others

We're not in this by ourselves – there are several other organizations that we work with regularly to promote tech in Fresno:

We work closely with each of these organizations – and others – to promote technology, host events, run workshops, and a whole lot more.

Your donation will enable us to keep working with others, and helps all of us succeed in creating a vibrant tech scene in Fresno.

The best way to support your local hackerspace is to become a member.

The second best way is to make a donation!
