Mission

The School Factory is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that helps hands-on learning communities start, grow, and thrive.

We fill in the gaps to make learning communities stronger and more stable, whether it's facilitating strategic planning, taking the overhead of financial management off their plate, or partnering with them to build new connections in their community. We work with these groups to manifest the values of inclusion, health & wellness, and development of the full person throughout their lifespan.

We focus on working with groups whose programmatic activities emphasize STEM/STEAM learning, creativity, self management, and/or social skills. We work regularly with collaborative spaces, schools, after school programs, and continuing education programs. Our services include fiscal sponsorship, program hosting, and consulting.

Fiscal Sponsorship

We provide fiscal sponsorship for new non-profits aligned with our mission to take tax-deductible donations prior to receiving their 501(c)3 designation from the IRS, while learning the ropes for fundraising and financial management.

Population(s) Served

We allow programs aligned with our mission to become part of the School Factory, giving them access to our 501(c)3 non-profit container, financial management services, and mentorship.

Population(s) Served

We work with schools, libraries, and other learning communities to help them start or build a sustainable program. We partner these organizations in a variety of ways, provide coaching, and facilitate meetings and input sessions.

Population(s) Served

We hope to attain the funding to soon relaunch our Space Federation program, which allows leaders of collaborative spaces to share ideas and best practices within a community of support. In the meantime, we still provide public access to our reference materials like the Make-A-Space Kit, which guides you through starting and growing a collaborative space.
