Support 100state

100state is directed by a group of members committed to our mission of helping to grow and connect Madison's creative, entrepreneurial, and professional communities. We're looking for support from individuals and organizations who share our passion and want to help us succeed.

None of our directors take any form of payment; in fact, we help to financially support the organization. All contributions go directly into projects, events, and operations. We're grateful for the support we've had in our just 10 weeks of operation so far, and are open to contributions of any kind.
