The ToolBank model fills a critical need that ensures that nonprofits in our communities have access to the tools, equipment, and supplies required to execute a broad range of projects. With the launch of Toolbank USA, the organization will enable partners by bringing resources and proven supply chain management and tool repair processes, to enable community projects across the domestic US.

When I first learned the mission and service that ToolBank provides to the other nonprofits in our community, I knew right away that I needed to be a part of bringing the ToolBank model to other communities across the US. The ToolBank enables volunteers to have access to the tools and equipment necessary to fulfill the call nationwide to renewed commitment to serving our communities and our country.

I find the idea of one 501(c)(3) helping other 501(c)(3)s intriguing. My legal focus is on franchising, and an affiliation with ToolBank USA's board will provide me with inspiration to encourage other 501(c)(3)s to use the franchise model to expand their concepts.

My 24-year career in the building products industry has taught me first-hand the importance of having the right tools to do the job right. With the expansion of ToolBank USA to additional cities and towns across America, more nonprofit and volunteer organizations will be able to leverage the core competency of the ToolBank so they may better fulfill their own mission.

During the early development of the Baltimore Community ToolBank, I had the opportunity to speak with many corporations, foundations and non-profit organizations about the mission and objectives of ToolBank USA. Every time, leaders could clearly see how impactful the ToolBank would be in their community, serving as a key partner and leading the charge for an increased level of volunteerism in the community. Every time I told the story of what the ToolBank would soon offer in Baltimore I grew prouder of being a part of the team. Having seen the impact firsthand, I'm excited to help grow the ToolBank movement across the United States.

Having been involved with a number of nonprofits, what separates the ToolBank for me is that it not only provides a much-needed service to the community, but also provides a way for volunteers to be involved in providing that service. Since I’ve been a member of the Atlanta ToolBank board, I’ve been extremely impressed with the very practical need this organization provides to the Atlanta community. The Toolbank is a nonprofit with tangible purpose that allows its volunteers to see the change that they are actually bringing to the community. National expansion is only the logical next step for the ToolBank model.

Toolbank USA's services has a multiplier effect, enabling other community non-profits to focus on their core competencies. I look forward to expanding Toolbank USA to other areas of the country.
