Tool Shed Quick Links:


For those who survived the Caldor Fire, and are working to rebuild their homes, every expense can be a burden.Building materials can be prohibitively expensive, and many survivors lack access to the tools and equipment  necessary to rebuild and/or harden their homes. West Slope Foundation (WSF) is committed to increasing community access to tools and equipment and will be opening a Community Toolshed.


The Community Toolshed is a program that provides Caldor Fire survivors with access to tools and 

equipment. It is a lending resource available at no charge to the families rebuilding their homes and their lives following the devastating Caldor Fire of August 2021. The program is currently under development and scheduled to be operational by August 19, 2022.

Initially, the Community Toolshed will only be available to community members that have been previously vetted by WSF or can prove that they have suffered damages as a result of the Caldor Fire. This will allow survivors to expedite their rebuild and repair efforts and protect survivors access to critical tools and equipment. Eventually, the West Slope Foundation can offer this program to the whole community and serve as a means for carrying out home hardening initiatives in an effort to increase household wildfire resiliency in the West Slope.



To begin, this project required an upfront investment to finance the program. WSF is currently seeking investment in the form of financial donations, grant assistance, or new tool donations. The project also needs continuing funds to pay for its operation. To cover the costs associated with the program, WSF will continue to hold fundraising events and seek funding from private donors.
