MakerDate is Assemble’s big celebration of our awesome community of supporters! This fundraiser is a celebration of the impact of Assemble’s STEAM based educational programming. We know that people of all ages, levels of expertise, and backgrounds feel the impact of Assemble’s programs – there’s no limit to who can build confidence through making!

Besides being a great party, MakerDate is a one-of-a-kind event, pairing skilled creators with people who want to learn something new. Attendees are able to bid on “dates” with craft makers, designers, technologists and innovators, who will work with the winning bidders to make a piece of art, a personalized piece of technology, or practice a new skill (see list below!). Instead of a single object, winners receive an unforgettable experience and a new relationship.

All funds raised at the event go toward Assemble’s educational Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math (STEAM) programs.
