Introducing The Foundation’s Newest Partnership: Chicago Tool Library

We are proud to announce our partnership with the Chicago Tool Library, whose mission is to provide equitable access to tools, equipment and information to allow all Chicagoans to learn, share and create. The tool library is similar to a book library. Residents are able to borrow from an inventory of over 2,500 tools for home repair, gardening, auto repair, cooking, cleaning and more at little to no charge.

We are proud to sponsor this year’s repair fairs, where community members bring broken items like small appliances, clothes, bikes and computers, and a group of talented volunteers help repair them. Learn more at
