What We Do

Charlotte ToolBank is a nonprofit tool-lending program that provides charitable organizations with year-round access to an inventory of tools. Access to ToolBank tools eliminates the need for agencies to incur the expense of purchasing, repairing, and storing tools. This reduces the costs associated with service projects and allowing these agencies to focus more of their resources on their mission. Our tools are used for volunteer projects, as well as facility and grounds maintenance. We provide tools to enhance the charitable sector’s capacity to serve -- facilitating hands-on volunteerism in the greater Charlotte area. We are more than tools... We also provide special event equipment! Sometimes having a fund/friendraiser, celebrating the working of volunteers & staff through a party, or providing a place for clients to gather for a movie night can be cost prohibitive. The ToolBank can help your organization make these possible and more cost-effective. We provide tents, tables, chairs, games, projectors, and more at pennies on the dollar for seven days of use. The Charlotte ToolBank maintains an 8,000 sq ft warehouse in South End and an inventory of 375+ types of tools and equipment -- in volumes large enough to equip thousands of volunteers at a time. Help us spread the word to charitable organizations! Refer them for a free ToolBank membership today! If you would like your gift to support the work of 1,000+ organizations serving our region, please donate monetarily or purchase needed items from our Amazon Wishlist.
