Equipment donations

The Sanctuary for Independent Media is an independent media arts and production facility – and we are always in need of donated audio/video and computer equipment! Every new camera or monitor helps us to expand the work that we do. Please contact us for a list of current needs or send us an email describing the piece of equipment you’d like to donate.

If you have another item that you think we might be interested in, but are not sure, send us an email or give us a call. Gently used or new office furniture and other supplies may also be accepted.

All donations are tax deductible.

Donate a Mac

The Sanctuary for Independent Media is looking for later model Mac computers to use as workstations for our producers and students. If you have one you can donate or would be interested in buying one for us, please send us an email. Your contribution will help production at the Sanctuary, and it’s tax-deductible.
