Do I have to be a member to use the space?
i3 Detroit is open to anyone to drop by and take a look around. Non-members are welcome to come by and work on projects. To use space for personal projects or consume resources, you are kindly asked to become a member.
All members will have access to the space whenever they feel like. Please check out i3 Detroit Membership for instructions on how to become a member. Membership dues are $100 per month. We’re funded entirely by dues and donations, so we encourage everyone to be a regular member if they can afford it. Of course you can always donate additional funds if you’re so inclined!

Our space (Once we have a space) will be open 24/7 to good standing members. Non-members are allowed to visit the space while another member is willing to accompany them.
Yes! Good standing members will be allowed to keep projects and personal items within project boxes.
Members will be allowed to keep personal tools and items within project boxes, which will be kept separate from donated tools and items. Tools given to the space (not kept within project boxes) will be considered to be a donation to the “501c3 nonprofit”, accessible to any member at any time. Donations are not returnable or refundable.
Only good standing members are allowed to donate items to the space (as to minimize clutter and junk accumulation). If you’re not a member and have something big to donate please speak with a member to cosign on the donation.
Currently No! i3 Detroit hopes to apply for our 501(c)(3) tax exempt status. Once we are approved for our tax exempt status, all donations to i3 Detroit will be tax deductible. (However, dues are not deductible due to IRS rules.)
