As a non-profit organisation, rLab is entirely dependent on donations in order to function. We do not receive any regular grants or on-going outside support and all our normal operating costs are met by our members. This does give us a considerable degree of freedom, which we strongly defend as it enables us to take on projects as we choose and set our own direction. We're happy to accept donations of money, equipment or materials to support our activities, but because we're an entirely voluntary group and we can't commit our members to any specific course of action, we are very cautious about accepting donations that have conditions attached.
rLab's ongoing operation is supported entirely by donations, we receive no grants or regular outside support. The majority of those donations come from our members who each pay (on average) £25 per month but from time to time we have also received donations from other people or organisations who share our goals and want to support us. If you share our goals and would like to support us then please get in touch at Hello@rlab.org.uk and we can discuss how to arrange things.
