Non-profits learn and play at the Open Bench Project

Non-Profits work to hard to support community.

Their drive and vision help us to reach for things that sometimes the market can’t. The community supports them so that they can help us be better. Non-profits embrace and support big ideas, so big sometimes that they can’t get there on their own. At the OBP we support non-profits and their work by providing an affordable means for them to complete their missions.

Whether providing access to our shop or gathering a team, the OBP is a resource for non-profits.
