“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:
- 59DaysOfCode puts on the largest tech competition in the Central Valley and provides various tech education programs.
- GDGFresno puts on two big tech conferences every year, Valley DevFest and WTM Fresno's IWDC.
- Hack Fresno is a hackathon at Fresno State, run by students, for students.
- Code for Fresno is our local Code For America brigade, focused on building a better Fresno. It's good tech for the public good.
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.
Here's a few things we could use around the space.
