Last night we held our very first VIRTUAL Bid to Build fundraising event. While it was definitely different, it was so much fun to engage with YOU AT HOME building maker kits together. And it was especially nice to see familiar friendly faces we miss seeing at The Foundry. Thank you for joining us!
Plus, it all goes to a good cause...
If you're interested, tickets are on sale through Monday, September 21st.

During these last few months of COVID-19 our students embraced the world of remote learning and our tenants continued to run their small businesses with the addition of new safety protocols. While nothing can replace hands-on learning in our makerspaces, we have successfully been able to adapt and forge ahead, building a new future. But now we need your help to keep this momentum going.
Join us (at home!) as we celebrate Bid to Build 2020 @TheFoundry.
