Supporting the Community with Tools for Change

The Richmond Community ToolBank is a nonprofit tool lending program that provides fellow not-for-profit organizations with year-round access to an inventory of tools. These tools are used to support volunteer and facility projects, as well as grounds maintenance in the Richmond area. We provide tools to enhance the charitable sector’s capacity to serve, while facilitating hands-on volunteerism.

Our 10,000 square-foot warehouse houses an inventory of nearly 12,000 individual tools, capable of equipping more than 1,000 volunteers at any given moment. This vast and wide-ranging inventory allows us to support a broad range of community projects and local initiatives.


A dedicate, diverse group of ToolBank employees and volunteers dedicated to driving community growth.


From wrenches and rakes to levels and ladders, we’ve got you covered. A toolbox for all of your volunteers.
