There are plenty of companies in the "prototype production" business; they will make either blank printed circuit boards, or assembled boards, in small quantities.  For our purposes a group build probably counts as "small quantity".  One I can think of (and have used for blank PCBs) is PCB Pool.

Depending on the parts involved and the skill level of the consumers, it may be reasonable to get blank boards and a parts bag and have the user assemble it -- or it may be better to let professionals do the assembly.
