ToolBank 101


What is a ToolBank?

A ToolBank® is a local nonprofit organization affiliated with ToolBank USA that stewards a vast inventory of actual tools for use by charities to advance their missions, increase impact, and reduce costs.  Available tool inventory includes cordless drills, ladders, rakes and shovels, circular saws and paint trays, and MUCH more.  Through quick and reliable access to large quantities of high-quality tools, each ToolBank transforms volunteerism in its area!  ToolBank tools are not available for use by individuals; the ToolBank is a resource for the charitable sector.
