SkullSpace is a non-profit community organization run solely by its members. Our membership dues cover most of our expenses, but we rely on donations to help us fund events, cover irregular costs, and keep our hackerspace stocked with equipment. If you are interested in contributing, there are a few ways to do so.
We accept both PayPal and Bitcoin.Donate Today
Our Bitcoin fund is held for long term by the Bonehead Bitcoin Endowment Trust, using multisig technology.
(There is also bitcoin cash at the same address.)
Non-fungible Tokens for sale
Non-fungible tokens (NFTs) are unique digital collectibles that typically live on a blockchain, most commonly Ethereum. Notable ones include CryptoPunks, CryptoKitties, NBA Top Shot, BurntBanksy, and Meeple’s collage EVERYDAYS: THE FIRST 5000 DAYS, which sold at a Christies auction for $69 million on 2021-03-11. Buying one is a unique way to support an artist, cause, or to show you are a fan of something. The following Skullspace affiliated NFTs is a way to show your support for Skullspace: A CryptoKitty for sale, held since Jan 2018: https://skullspace.ca/cats
You can also donate in person!
If you attend one of our open nights on Tuesdays, you are welcome to donate some cash in exchange for some food and drink from our canteen. You can also give cash directly to one of our directors – they’ll know what to do with it!
Fundscrip gift cards
We offer gift cards through FundScrip to over 180 retailers. You pay for the value of the gift card plus shipping (about $0.87) and we get a commission of about 3%. Donate to SkullSpace by buying the things you would buy anyway! How cool is that?
To get cards, go to fundscrip.com and sign up using our invitation code, SS5BMZ. We ask that when you checkout you use Electronic Fund Transfer or Online Bill Payment – credit card or Interac® payments reduce the commission.
