Thank you for donating to Mainframe Studios and a new nonprofit model for strengthening creative culture in urban areas. We are becoming one of the largest affordable workspaces for artists in the country.

One and done – Our self-sustaining business eliminates the need for annual fundraising. Initial fundraising is essential for establishing our vision by supporting building acquisition and renovation costs. Then, our below-market rents are priced to cover operating expenses and a reserve fund, with remaining rental income contributing to an endowment.

Mainframe Studios is harnessing the impact creative professions have on innovation, economic vibrancy, a skilled workforce, tourism and social well being. Your donation is ensuring artists have a place in our community for generations to come.
