Your volunteer support enables the ToolBank to serve hundreds of not-for-profits agencies every year.
Your donation of tools is critical to the success of our tool lending program. Tools require a lot of care and attention, from blade replacements to oil changes, and so your donation of accessories and supplies are equally important. We gladly accept accept donations of new and gently used tools, tool accessories, repair/maintenance supplies, consumable project supplies, and other items that can be used in our warehouse or office.
If you would like to make an in-kind donation to the ToolBank or have any questions, please contact Toby Vernon, Executive Director, at (804) 219-0606 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Donations of tools are incorporated into our lending inventory whenever possible. Donations of tools that don’t fit into our inventory are either sold to the public or given to other organizations that can use them. Though we add new tools to our inventory every year, our current Global Tool Inventory Catalog, a listing of all tools approved for lending, is available to view.
Donations of materials and consumable project supplies that are compatible with our inventory are distributed to our member agencies when they borrow tools. For example, donated paint tray liners are offered to member agencies when they borrow paint trays. Donations of materials incompatible with our inventory are either sold to the public or given to other organizations that can use them.
