How does monthly giving benefit the Miners Foundry?
Like all arts and cultural organizations, the Miners Foundry cannot rely on ticket sales and event rentals alone. Memberships and donations play a significant role in ensuring the success and continuation of the Miners Foundry.
Cost Effective, Environmentally Friendly, & Mission-focused
Monthly membership reduces administrative time and expenses, and ensures a continual stream of support, allowing the Foundry to continue to preserve the historic building, present an array of programming choices, and provide a gathering place for the community.
