MissionBoard of Directors


The mission of Tools for Opportunity is to provide woodworking tools and training to deserving underprivileged craftsmen in developing countries. We distribute tools to craftsmen who would like to start or expand a woodworking business. The goal is to offer opportunities for financial security and self-reliance to individuals who would otherwise not have the resources to pursue their dreams of a better life.

Our vision is not about providing charity, but rather to seed long-term economic development that can raise the living standard in these areas through the hard work, skill and talent of local craftsmen. We believe honest, hardworking, talented woodworkers, with a few simple tools can develop a more viable woodworking business and provide a more secure income for their families.

Tools for Opportunity is incorporated in the State of Iowa. The IRS has granted Tools for Opportunity 501(C)(3) tax exempt status, so all donations are tax deductible as allow by law.

We are currently focusing our efforts on El Salvador and Honduras in Central America.
