The ToolBank Story


Invest in the cause touching every nonprofit you care about. With over 55,000 local volunteers putting the blue tools to work each year, your local ATL ToolBank is transforming communities and improving lives - thousands of projects at a time. We're not just about bricks and mortar around here. The people best know the needs of their communities. So come on, let them work!  Every dollar immediately and directly keeps more volunteers equipped with the right tool for every job!



In 2015 alone, ATL ToolBank equipped 49,9573 volunteers to complete 2,191 service projects across greater Atlanta. 

The ToolBank model adheres to the core belief of self-empowerment, recognizing that the people best know the needs of their community. And, when given the tools needed to mobilize and maintain hands on service projects - communities will strengthen. Check out how it all works...
