Donation Wish-List

Lansing Makers Network has a gift acceptance policy which governs what items we will/will not accept as donations.

This list includes items that are being specifically sought for the makerspace, most donations of equipment or tools are considered. Please feel free to contact us at (PLEASE include pictures of your items if at all possible) to inquire about the possibility of a donation. Some items don't add enough value to the makerspace for us to accept outright. If the item is indeed an item we're unable to accept, we may be able to help direct you to a group that would accept it or a place to recycle.

(Hopefully organized roughly by category)


  • Tables & Work Surfaces


  • Vertical Milling Machine (Bridgeport or the like)
  • Toolroom Lathe
  • MIG Welding Equipment
  • Drum Sander


  • NEWER computers (less than 2-3 years old)

Items we (probably) DON'T Need

  • Computers over 5-years old.
  • CRT Monitors
  • Construction / Demolition scrap (unused, quality lumber or metals are the exception)
