Some sample mission statements would be good to consider:

Milwaukee Makerspace from Purpose section of their by-laws:

The purpose of the MMS organization is: 

  • Build and maintain spaces suitable for technical and social collaboration.
  • Collaboration on all forms of technology, culture, and craft in new and interesting ways.
  • Freely share its research and discoveries, using what is learned to teach others.
  • Recruit and develop talented members dedicated to these purposes.

‚ÄčOr as they say on the About page of their website:

"Milwaukee Makerspace, at its heart, is a social club for people who like to build, invent, tinker and/or collect new skills and expand their minds."

From Sector 67's website:

"Sector67 is a non-profit collaborative space in Madison, WI dedicated to providing an environment to learn, teach, work-on, build, and create next generation technology; including software, hardware, electronics, art, sewing, pottery, glass, metalwork, iPhone/Android applications, games, etc."
