Founders is community funded.

Founders is an amazing place, no question, due to the calibre of the community behind it. It’s precisely because of that community that we can use a community-funded model like this one.

Below we’ve broken down the dollar amount necessary to run Founders for an hour, a work day, 24 hours, a week, and a full month.


$5 Powers Founders for an hour

Even $5 powers Founders for an hour, and it’s also the easiest way to show your support of the space. Skip that extra coffee today and help keep Founders running smoothly.

At the $5 level you will be awarded a special badge (assuming you have a Founders account).

$35 Powers Founders for one work day

$100 Powers Founders for 24 hours

One hundred dollars powers Founders for a full 24 hour period — morning, noon, and night. If you regularly find yourself becoming a Founders night owl, this support level might be perfect for you.

Powering a full day of operation is no small feat; with a dedicated group of supporters at this level Founders will fund itself and be able to grow.

$700 Powers Founders for one week

At this level you will be making it possible for Founders to be filled to the brim with productive Fort Wayne minds for seven full days.

A full week is a truly meaningful contribution. After all a lot can happen in a week; just take a look at our blog and see how quickly things move at Founders.

$3,000 Powers Founders for one month

At this level you will be responsible for powering operations at Founders for a full thirty days — wow. At that point we should be naming rooms after you1.

Seriously though, while we are appreciative of every support level this is particularly generous. Thanks for caring so much about our vision!

1 Kidding, of course. That’s just silly.
