Members Can Now Sign Up

We still have a garage worth of tools to catalogue, tools to purchase with funds raised in the ioby campaign and most importantly need to locate an appropriate space for the Phoenix Tool Shed. But let’s not let those minor details stop you from signing up to become a member. Due to the circumstances, any membership started before the doors are open will be extended to a year after our first day of business once that is established. Our goal is by the end of the year (a great Christmas present for Father or Son). So if you’re ready to join us in this journey, click on “Become a member” above or follow this link: Create an Account

Thank you supporters and Campaign Donors

A huge thanks to everyone that shared the link or took it upon themselves to donate to the crowdfunding campaign. We raised 86% of our goal and are thrilled with that accomplishment. On some platforms, we wouldn’t receive the money unless we fully met our goal, but ioby isn’t set up that way so all the pledge money will be sent to our bank account and then promptly and properly be utilized to proceed in the establishment of Phoenix’s first public tool library. Thank you again and I look forward to loaning you all tools in the near future.

Help us reach our goal!

Marco, Michael, Jen, and myself have struck out on a path to start a new non-profit organization called Phoenix Tool Shed. This organization will be a tool lending library for phoenix residents (think library, with racks of tools instead of books). Our efforts have been noticed by The Center for a New American Dream who have chosen us to participate in their Get2Gether Neighborhood Challenge where they’re going to match dollar for dollar any donations we raise. We’re already well on our way to our goal and we’re asking you to join us in this journey to opening the doors to Phoenix’s first tool lending library. Go here to donate:
