Like many nonprofits, GALA depends on the in-kind contributions from folks like you. We have predictable needs like office supplies, stamps, gas cards, etc. and now with the exciting GALA Makerspace project underway, we have some very specialized needs for tools and equipment with which to outfit the various workshop and get programs rolling!
Below is our ever-changing Wish List. Thanks you for taking a look. Please give us a call – 603-569-1500 if you are able to provide any of these items and we will arrange for a pickup or provide directions to our office for drop off. Please also review our In-Kind Donation Acceptance Policy which can be downloaded by clicking here. THANK YOU!
We call work teams “circles”. They are the heart of every organization. A circle is a group of people who work together and decide together how the work is being done.
Circles you can participate in include those for planning and actioning:
Programs & Tools: Help build a list of future classes, instructors, and needed tools and equipment so that the makerspace can hit the ground running on opening day.
Building & Property: Help ensure that the building and property remain “tour ready”, meaning safe, tidy, and inspiring.
Advancement & Development: Help organize events and campaigns to meet fundraising benchmarks and goals. Grow mailing list and increase community visibility.
Mission Circle (Board of Directors): Uphold the fiduciary and legal obligations of GALA, while ensuring all operations support the stated mission and vision. Download Board Member Referral Form HERE.
