Commitee Fund Reports and Board Approved Expenditure Tracking have moved to the bottom of the monthly board meeting notes. The intention of this change is to make the information more accessible and increase awareness. This page will not be updated going forward.

Benjamin Groves is the current Dallas Makerspace Treasurer and initiated this change. ben.groves@dallasmakerspace.org


The Makerspace uses different funds to keep track of the funds belonging to each of the makerspace's committees or projects.

This page has a link to a report with the current balance of each fund and a brief explanation for some of the funds.

If you have questions about events or a report, e-mail the treasurer directly at paul.brown@dallasmakerspace.org.
