Get Involved


We Want You

We believe strong community engagement is crucial for any project to be successful - so we want you to be involved every step of the way, from cleaning, to funding, to simply enjoying the space together. Below are the many ways to contribute to the project and get your voice heard, or your hands dirty!


Whether you are an individual, organization, or corporation, we would love for you to join us as we activate the space. We will need help with everything from cleaning, to construction, to running the Foundry projects. 


As a 501(c)3 nonprofit, we appreciate the generosity of our wonderful donors to make our project a success. Your donation will go straight to cleaning and renovating the residency house, art park, or commercial building. If you'd like a donation to go to one particular part of the mission, just let us know and we will set aside the money for the piece you are most passionate about. We are grateful to all who see the vision and help us bring it to fruition. 

Book an Event

Our 9,000 sq. ft. outdoor Art Park will be available this summer for events! We are excited to share our space with you for anything from weddings, to corporate gatherings, to concerts, to neighborhood parties. Just reach out with your ideas and we will work together to make them a reality.
