Twin Cities Maker is funded by its members, and by donations.

Before signing up, please make sure you have contacted Brandon, our Treasurer for the board. He requires that your paperwork is approved before signing up for automatic payments.

Membership Options

The current membership options are:

$55 / month – Regular membership

$75 / month – Rockstar membership: you really love us!

$330 – 6 month membership. Get one free month!

$550 – A full year membership gets you two free months!

There is also a $25 key deposit charge payable when you sign up. This makes the first month’s charge $80 for a standard membership, and $100 for the rockstar membership.

All standard memberships listed above are eligible for the “household” membership option. A household membership only has one voting and primary member, but allows two people residing at the same address access to the space.

We also have a student/retiree membership, which requires some documentation from you. For details and requirements check out the wiki.

Becoming a member

If you’d like to become a member, the easiest way is to stop by the space during our Wednesday night open house, from 7-9pm. If you can’t make it then, send an email to, and we’ll make arrangements. (Twin Cities Maker is owned and operated completely by volunteers, so we have to work around our volunteers’ other commitments.)

All membership dues are to be paid on or by the 1st of the month.  A late penalty of $10 will be assessed  after the fifth day of the month.

You can also pay your dues with cash or check to our treasurer.


We are a 501c3 non-profit organization, this allows us to receive tax deductible donations. Contact if you would like to donate funds directly to The Hack Factory.
