How can I donate or pay dues to Noisebridge?

Membership

Who is a member?

  • PayPal treasurer@noisebridge.net:
  • Check made out to "Noisebridge": give it to a board member or officer at the space, or mail to:
2215-R Market St. #235
San Francisco, CA 94114
  • Cash: give to a board member or officer at the space, or any of the donation buckets.
For dues, please use an envelope labelled with your name, the amount, and "December Dues" (or whatever is appropriate).

Are donations to Noisebridge tax deductible?

Noisebridge is an educational non-profit CA corporation for the public good, and we recently received 501(c)(3) tax exempt status. All donations to Noisebridge since October 2008 are considered charitable gifts. Whether or not your donation is tax deductible depends on your tax situation and other factors; consult your tax preparer. Please contact secretary@noisebridge.net and treasurer@noisebridge.net should you require documentation of your donation.

Are membership dues tax deductible?

This depends on your tax situation and other factors and as such is not answerable by Noisebridge. Some value may be received in exchange for your dues, depending on your usage of the Noisebridge space. Please discuss it with your tax preparer.

Do companies match donations?

Some employers will match an employee's tax-deductible contribution to a 501(c)(3) nonprofit! Generally the nonprofit has to do some small amount of paperwork. Contact a board member if your employer will match, and we're happy to do this work!

In particular, the following companies are already set up:

  • Google (as of July 2009)
Personal tools
