Donation box/tip jar, in person

If you find your visit to AHA insightful or useful, or you’d like to offset the cost of tool maintenance or materials, please consider dropping a few dollars in our tip jar while you’re visiting! There is also a locked grey donation box on the pillar to the right of the entrance for larger contributions.

All Hands Active wishlist

We have a wishlist that we would greatly appreciate donations from, and if you think the space is missing something, submit a new item to the wishlist.

About All Hands Active

AHA!/All Hands Active is Ann Arbor’s volunteer-run community-resource makerspace and we need your support! Your donation covers expenses, classes, and tools.

All Hands Active Members

We offer tools, space and expertise to the public for free or low cost. We make our laser cutter, 3d printers, power tools and hand tools accessible through skill-building workshops, at events like Penguicon and the Ann Arbor Creativity & Making Expo, and weekly drop-in public hours.

Free sharing of knowledge and tools makes good things happen—like beautiful floor tiles, custom lab equipment, or saving a Nintendo Gamecube from the landfill. Our resources support individual artists, hobbyists and researchers as well as labs, small businesses and startups. Our organization fosters a community of makers who share knowledge and help.

Non-repeating tessellation project

AHA has been a special resource for many people, in ways seen and unseen. But we need your help to continue serving the community, and to expand and do even more for the community. Your contribution will help keep us available for the public to use, and help make the space awesome! Every contribution counts, every donation makes a difference, and all help is appreciated.
