This #GivingTuesday, we ask for your help in funding the Generator BIPOC Scholarship – an active and tangible way of supporting BIPOC artists, innovators, and entrepreneurs in Vermont.
Help increase access
Due to systemic racism and discriminatory policies, Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) often face greater obstacles to advancement in arts, technology, and entrepreneurship. The BIPOC Scholarship is one way that Generator works to increase access to training, resources, and mentorship for BIPOC folks in these fields.
Scholarship recipients receive 6 months of free membership and 2 free tool trainings, allowing them to learn, work, and play in our six technical shops. These shops are home not only to advanced toolsets, but to a supportive and collaborative maker community.
Since 2020, Generator has given $30,000 in scholarships and served 16 BIPOC community members, an accomplishment which would not be possible without support of our donors.
We are committed to raising $100,000 by 2024 to sustain this impactful scholarship for at least 10 years – but we need your support to do so. You can open doors and make a difference for a BIPOC maker’s creative, business, and professional pursuits by donating today.
Our goal is to reach 50 donors that will step up to support this important initiative on #GivingTuesday.
Will you help us reach our goal?
