General Info

What is a ToolBank and how does it work? The Portland Community ToolBank lends tools to charitable organizations that prove charitable intent. Tools may be borrowed for up to eight weeks. The use of ToolBank equipment for personal benefit is prohibited. All visitation to the ToolBank is by appointment only. Following successful online registration with their local ToolBank, the charitable organization becomes a ToolBank Member Agency. To obtain tools, a Member Agency representative submits their tool order online no less than two business days from the time they wish to pick up the tools. Tool orders may be made up to 120 days in advance, and once approved, the ToolBank guarantees availability of your requested tools. The Member Agency pays a Tool Handling Fee, calculated by the following formula: Total retail value of borrowed tools X number of weeks borrowed x 3% The Member Agency must return the borrowed tools before the due date, or incur late fees at 6% per week (double the tool handling fee). The Member Agency may extend the borrowing period, with consent from ToolBank staff. A Member Agency with overdue tools or unpaid fees may not borrow additional tools from the ToolBank, until all balances are brought to zero and all unreturned tools are accounted for. Following a completed tool transaction, the Member Agency is asked to complete a 3-question survey, anonymously evaluating their experience at their ToolBank. The questions provide a continuous improvement opportunity for the ToolBank, and inform staff on what tools are needed in the tool inventory. Program excellence is achieved through superior customer service.

What item do you think is one of the most popular and highly borrowed at other ToolBanks across the country? Here is a hint: it might not be what you would consider as a "traditional" tool?

Just overhead at tonight's ToolBank board meeting: "Do it, do it." Thanks trusty board member, Erin. Wise words. We shall do it. :)

The hard work of the Portland Community is beginning to pay dividends! We are so excited to be well on our way to opening the Portland Community Toolbank. We passed a very important funding milestone today! We are thrilled and can't wait to help our community. You provide the sweat, we'll provide the tools.

Next up for the Portland ToolBank - tenant improvements including a fully equipped conference room for volunteer training and for ToolBank agencies to use for their meetings (complimentary); washer/dryer hookups; and a large basin installation to clean the tools so they are in great condition for every tool order! Now to find generous benefactors of these things....

Among many other things, I'm thankful to have a job that I love, specifically a purpose to open for the community and do good work - not to mention colleagues I enjoy working with. What are you thankful for?
