CDFA Tax Credit Program

In February 2016, we moved to a 20,000 square foot facility in Nashua.  Using almost entirely volunteer labor, we spent the prior 6 months renovating about half of the overall square footage to support our existing makerspace operation. 

We have big dreams!  We plan to renovate a portion of the remainder of the facility to create a technology-focused co-working space and technology incubator.

MakeIt Labs was one of only 16 non-profit organizations awarded NH tax credits by the CDFA.  We need your help to turn those credits into $250,000 worth of improvements to our new facility, including a complete renovation of the second floor.  We even have an architecture firm on board to professionally design the entire renovation, pro bono!

In addition to any tax benefits normally received from a donation to our 501(c)3, 75% of the donated amount will be returned to the donor in the form of NH business tax credits!  This means that a contribution of $50,000 can be made for little more than $5,000 out of pocket.

If you own or work for a NH business that may be interested in contributing to our project, please contact us for more details and to get us in touch with the appropriate people.
