Let’s Make It!

Join us in bringing G.A.L.A.’s original vision to life by establishing Makers Mill: A Makerspace & Vocation Hub where people come together to cultivate and share a wide variety of crafts, skills, technologies, and arts for personal, professional, and community goals.

Help us open our doors!

We just need to raise $78,000 of our Phase 1 Construction budget of $1,300,000 to open our doors later this year!

  • Together, we bought a 10,000 sq ft building in downtown Wolfeboro, New Hampshire.

  • We asked the community how to best utilize the space to meet their goals and needs.

  • We used your feedback to prioritize programs and create floor plans.

  • We worked with the town and architects to turn those plans into construction documents ready for bidding.

  • From grants and generous donors, 94% percent of the $1.35 million needed is already committed!

The final 6% - or $78,000 - needs to be raised by summer 2021 in order to open the doors in fall.

This is our fundraising homestretch to be shovel ready!


Thanks to everyone who has supported Makers Mill already!

The Makers Mill is a great example of what’s needed to help tackle New Hampshire’s outmigration and workforce challenges, especially in Carroll County where they are the most pronounced.

Will Stewart, Executive Director, Stay, Work, Play NH

We agree with G.A.L.A. on the benefits of bringing a makerspace into Carroll County, and are thrilled to name Wolfeboro as the home of this regional service.

Mary DeVries, Executive Director, Wolfeboro Chamber of Commerce

I am enthusiastic about working with the Makers Mill to address the gap in services for 18 - 30 yr olds who wish to upgrade their technical skills or the adults who wish to retrain for new job transitions.

We’ve come a long way!

The story of G.A.L.A. began with a potluck supper in the winter of 2006 when a small group of community members came together to ask themselves, “how can we be the change we want to see in the world?”
