San Juan Islands Makers Guild Program Funding, 2019-current
COMMUNITY MATCHING The largest start-up investment being made to date in developing and delivering the Makers Guild programs is coming from VOLUNTEERS. Calculating the amount of donated time and effort our volunteers have provided, more than 5,000 hours of un-paid, volunteer time has been invested between all of the Guild’s volunteers, 2019-2022.
