JOIN IN: We’re passionate about connecting community members to making Indianapolis thrive. We welcome contributors with a passion for design, A/V, outreach, writing, web dev, & transparent accounting, and are open to ideas for new projects. Connect with us to learn more about how to get involved in iTooLL and our sharing community! Click on the roles below to learn more.

iTooLL Members can reserve tools, & borrow them at $1/ week. Members will have ultimate say on all decisions affecting the iTooLL program, and determine all future tool purches through our Cobudget process. You can see prices—and membership—here.
Friends of the Co-op support our initiatives or iTooLL ~ once/ month or less. We support Friends of the Co-op by amplifying their work through our media channels (email list, twitter, instagram, etc).
Contributors volunteer 12~15 hours per month. They can participate in all decision-making that the Directors do, and get the benefits of:
A) Promotions of their events and endeavors through our channels
B) Free rentals with iTooLL Membership
Directors manage the iTooLL membership’s relationship with our parent org, Kheprw Institute, who officially owns iTooLL, but leaves it to the membership and us to self-manage.

Contributors and iTooLL Members may easily become Directors, by consent of the current Directors, after attending (3) Whole Collective Meetings.

Typically, Whole Collective meetings are open, but we ask you contact us if you’d like to attend.

Besides becoming a member, donating funds and (barely) used tools [wishlist] to the library are the best ways to support iTooLL! Tool donations are accepted and processed during regular open hours and can result in membership discounts*. We also appreciate those who can make a one-time, monthly, or yearly monetary donation. Financial giving is tax-deductible and is accepted in-person, by check** or online.

* $500 of tools earns a free year of iTooLL Membership. $2,500 can earn you a lifetime membership. Valuation is at iAMCo-op’s discretion.
** Checks are made out to our fiscal agent, “Candlestick House & Engagement Center”
