Our Tools. Your Volunteers. Building Community.


Started in 2021 as a TDS Deployment, the New Orleans ToolBank is now a brick and mortar warehouse that serves community-based organizations by providing tools, equipment & expertise to empower their most ambitious goals. Our mission is to equip communities with the tools they need to bring about positive change. Our signature tool lending program allows organizations to borrow tools instead of purchasing them, thereby saving funds that can be utilized to support their mission.

At ToolBank, we aim to disrupt the cycle of unequal distribution of wealth by sharing our resources with qualified community-based organizations. By providing equal access to resources, we remove barriers faced by those who lack it traditionally and help people with service or charitable intent to work on the front lines of our communities’ problems by providing equal access to tools.
