Make a Donation

The Lakeshore Fab Lab is a service offered to the community by Muskegon Community College.  The Fab Lab relies mostly on revenues from memberships and classes/projects to keep our doors open. However, in order to keep those costs down so more community members can take advantage of our services, we ask for donations.

Monetary Donations

Monetary donations can be made to the Foundation for Muskegon Community College (a 501C3 entity) via the Lakeshore Fab Lab website.  Upon receipt you will receive a thank you note and documentation of your gift for tax purposes.
