In-Kind Donations

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 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 Samantha Norton, Community Engagement Coordinator, at (513) 246-0015 or samantha.norton@toolbank.org.

TOP TOOL, ACCESSORY & SUPPLY NEEDS

Donations of tools are incorporated into our lending inventory whenever possible. Donations of tools that don’t fit into our inventory are either sold at ToolRush 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 at ToolRush or given to other organizations that can use them.

If you would like to make an in-kind donation to the Cincinnati ToolBank please send a description and pictures of the donation to Samantha Norton, at samantha.norton@toolbank.org. For questions about in-kind donations please e-mail Samantha or call (513) 246-0015.
