Become a Sustaining Donor!!

Solidarity, not charity! We believe that everyone contributes in a different way and that everyone has a gift to share.

This spring, The Tool Library is launching a giving campaign focused on growing our community of Sustaining Donors and volunteers.

Who are sustaining donors? Our sustaining donors are individuals who give to The Tool Library on a monthly basis – whether it’s $1 or $100.

We know not everyone can give the same way, but for those who are able to financially support The Tool Library, becoming a sustaining donor helps cover costs associated with our Spring Service Days and community tool lending services.

Interested in giving back in a different way? As a volunteer-powered community nonprofit, volunteers make what we do possible! Send us an email at and let us know how you might like to put your time, talents, and passion to work at The Tool Library!


1. Fill out membership form
2. Pay annual membership fee
3. Get access to 1000’s of tools
4. Change the world!

A membership to the Tool Library gives individuals and organizations access to an inventory of thousands of tools for an annual fee starting as low as $30. With no rental fees and a week-long loan period, stop spending hundreds of dollars to buy tools you’ll only use once and start borrowing ours today!

By supporting the Tool Library through a membership, you’re not only gaining access to thousands of tools, you’re also supporting dozens of hands-on projects and programs working everyday to make our city a little better.

"When you share tools with a community, they begin doing things they never could have done before."
