Capital Campaign

We Need Your Support

Nova Labs has to find a new home, and we can't do it without you!


The Inaugural Capital Campaign is kicking off with Donation Matching through the month of December. Your support is crucial to ensuring that Nova Labs continues to be a community resource where all makers – novices, hobbyists, and pros – can coexist in one space as a cohesive community, and continue to grow as part of the worldwide maker movement.

Don't miss the chance to have your donation doubled!

Nova Labs is embarking on its inaugural capital campaign and is seeking your support. The Double Your Donation campaign will position this nationally recognized nonprofit for future growth and a necessary 2022 relocation.

For the month of December, all donations to the Nova Labs Capital Fund will be matched dollar for dollar up to $50,000. Donations must be received by December 31, 2019 to qualify for matching, so don’t wait!

Who We Are
Nova Labs is the premier makerspace in the Northern Virginia, Washington D.C., Maryland area. We are membership-driven and 100% volunteer run. Our makerspace, located in Reston, VA, is comprised of 10,500 square feet of classrooms, workspace, incubator offices and workshops. The facility offers access to tools and advanced fabrication equipment for members to work and collaborate on exciting projects, as well as teach classes, learn about equipment maintenance, and promote making in the broader community.

Founded in 2011, with the purpose of empowering our community to Rediscover the Joy of Making Things, this non-profit 501(c)(3) organization supports a wide range of open-source development projects and programs that benefit both the local community and the world.
