Purpose

The AAW Tool Bank grant program seeks to provide woodturning tools to selected chapters, educators, and nonprofit schools and organizations for the purpose of teaching the art and craft of woodturning to youth and underrepresented groups.


History

The AAW Tool Bank collection was launched at the 2013 AAW Symposium in Tampa, FL, by collecting tools donated for Turners Without Borders (TWB) global outreach initiative. Since then, members have donated new and lightly used tools to the program to help programs such as Woodturning Beyond Barriers, Turning to the Future, and Turners Without Borders during the AAW’s Annual Symposium.

Application Timeline

  • Awards will be made quarterly in February, May, August, and November. 
  • Deadlines for applications are January 31, April 30, July 31, and October 31.
