Thank you for donating to Mainframe Studios – a new nonprofit model for strengthening creative cultures in urban areas.We are the largest noprofit workspace for artists in the country.

ONE MORE FLOOR TO GO! Completing renovations and achieving our financially self-sustaining business plan is within reach!

We invite you to make history with us. The Lauridsen family recently pledged a $1M matching gift, which doubles the value of your contributions. Give now to ensure that artists have a place in the heart of our city for generations to come.

Please consider giving at any level. Whether $5, $50 or $50,000 - every dollar is doubled.

Campaign contributions are 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. Our self-sustaining business plan eliminates the need for annual fundraising.
