From York Hackspace
Jump to: navigation, search

York Hackspace is run entirely by its members - we are run as a non-profit, and the majority of the income needed to sustain our hackspace comes from membership fees. It costs nearly £15 a day to run the hackspace.

If you'd like to become a member, please see Becoming a Member.

Our standard membership fee is £30 monthly, however we understand that this is a lot of money for some people and will happily offer concessions for students and those who cannot afford it. The hackspace is paid for entirely by membership fees and donations, and is run as a non-profit. Any money left over after rent/electricity/WiFi etc are covered is used to purchase consumables and equipment for use by all members.
