We run a wide variety of programs and workshops, each of them requiring different materials. We’re always in need of general office supplies, particularly composition books, as well as arts and crafts materials. Donations of food and drink—whether healthy snacks for our workshop students or catering/adult beverages for a fundraising event—are also much needed and appreciated. Digital appliances, fine art, custom furniture, bookmaking supplies, venue use—you name it, we can probably use it.
If you have items that you would like to donate to Austin Bat Cave, or if you know of a company that could supply us with donated materials or in-kind services, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
