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!

Join The Tool Library and our community partners for service events across the University and Masten Districts this fall!

“Volunteering is the ultimate exercise in democracy. You vote in elections once a year, but when you volunteer, you vote every day about the kind of community you want to live in.”

We believe that a strong community is a civically engaged community. We put our tools to work improving the places we share through large-scale community projects such as neighborhood clean-ups, tree-plantings, community gardens, and public art installations. Each year we help organize and facilitate more than a dozen community service events in partnership with block clubs, community groups, and neighborhood organizations.

We’re excited to announce our Fall 2022 line-up of events! Most events take place on Saturday mornings and last no longer than three hours. Please plan to bring your cellphone, as volunteers will need to sign a digital waiver before participating in each event.

Be sure to check our Facebook page and website often, as new events are likely to be added!
