If you’re looking for some good social giving opportunities this year, we’d like to suggest that you please consider donating to FCDI in support of the Advanced Manufacturing & Robotics Center (AMRoC) Fab Lab.  AMRoC Tampa Bay is being designed to be a place of empowerment, skill building, economic and personal fulfillment for Temple Terrace and the neighborhoods surrounding the University of South Florida area.

The Foundation for Community Driven Innovation, in partnership with University Mall, the Hillsborough County Public Library Cooperative, PLuGHiTz Live and with the support of other fine businesses and organizations, is excited to be working with this beautiful blank canvas of space to create a truly useful resource for as many people as possible.  To that end, contributions of financial and physical support, through donations of money or equipment are deeply valued.

Ways to Give

There are lots of ways to give to the Advanced Manufacturing and Robotics Center Fab Lab this holiday season.  You can contribute as part of the #GivingTuesday campaign, and encourage others by showing your support when you do.  

You can shop our Amazon Wish List, where you can see the kinds of items that we can use at AMRoC.  Our Wish List items range from air compressors and belt sanders to hand and power tools, to electronics, office equipment, safety and cleaning equipment.

We also welcome donations of new, gently used and well conditioned tools and equipment. 


If you or your company or organization would like to be an AMRoC Fab Lab Sponsor, we’re happy to help you find a giving level that meets your corporate needs and interests.  All donors of $500 and above will be featured on our Gears of Change wall at the Fab Lab as well as on our Partner page on this website.
