Why support MSMKY?

Makerspaces Mackay is a non for profit organisation. Donating to MSMKY is a way of giving back to the community; we operate almost 100% on public support. Cash donations are especially welcome. They go towards things such as operational costs, organisational fees and consumable materials.

Got any trash?

We love all sorts of donations, but especially things like:

  • Old workshop equipment of any kind
  • Electronic equipment
  • Motorised equipment (old remote control toys are good)
  • Your time!

    We need a shed!

    At them moment, we can't accept too many donations, because we simply don't have anywhere to keep them. We are looking for a more permanent share-space. We currently operate from the CQUniversity Engineering building - but that cannot be forever. We are looking for someone to share a space with MSMKY so that we can can finally call somewhere home!

  • Care to share?

    If you can help us out in any way, please let us know your details and we will certainly be in touch with you!


    Your Donation has been submitted, and we will be in touch with you soon. Please check your email spam folder for a confirmation email that your donation was submitted.

    Thank you very much for you help and consideration.
