MUD is an extraordinary nonprofit, offering community members practical and immediately applicable tools to live and work together in a more sustainable way. Their Tool Library has helped me through many-a-DIY-project over the past two years, and I always look forward to their workshops, which range from DIY floor tiling, to learning how to eat and cook locally, to learning how to make beauty products from your own garden plants. I look forward to MUD's 30th anniversary this year and all that they have planned to involve more of the community, like potentially relocating and expanding the Tool Library and adding to their Youth Education Programs.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

My own life - mostly in being able to do projects at home myself because I can use the Tool Library tools and also in learning how to do projects on my own through their workshops.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Increase the Tool Library hours and have better on-site facilities to do a greater variety of workshops.

MUD not only educates our youth the rest of our city on ways to improve our stewardship of the planet and minimizing our footprint, it offers practical hands-on support, such as the tool library and gardening courses. Additionally, MUD connects neighbors, so that we can help each other out. MUD has a great and powerful presence in the Missoula community. They are an investment in our future.

add money so that the outreach could grow.

Having MUD in town is like having a clever uncle who lets you use his tool shed and shows you how to do cool stuff that you never trusted yourself to do...like raise chickens and tile your bathroom.

Each time the list of things to fix in my house grows large enough, I mosey-on-over to
the tool library and help myself to an assortment of gadgets that will make quick work of the task at hand. It is a free service for members, and the cost of membership is on par with a mid-range garden hose. It has saved me a huge chunk of money that probably would've otherwise been spent on underused personal tools.

I am a proud member, and love the service it provides to the community.

The Great!

my functioning bathroom ventilation fan.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

increase the number of tool libraries and scatter them throughout the city.

MUD is one of the more innovative and unique non-profits I've ever encountered. They've carved out a great niche as a model for how to make owning a home more affordable by sharing tools, providing affordable classes, and providing actual demonstration projects.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Witnessing the growth of north-side demonstration houses, which are two of the cooler properties in town. I've also taken advantage of the truck share several times.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Get it a more sustainable small dollar fundraising base by recruiting monthly members rather than annual members.
