Do you want to buy tools or get them donated? Make a list of tools before you talk to anyone, and ask for an extra set so that you have replacements on hand when something breaks, goes missing, or is getting warrantied. I would suggest getting all the non-bike specific tools ("hard-line") donated by a non-bike tool company. Those would be your box wrenches, screw drivers, allen wrenches, bench vices, etc.,.. And then raise money to buy the rest. There are only a handful of bike tool manufacturers out there, and park tool corners the market on certain tools -- so they get hit up for donations all the time. Once you have some money raised up, you can contact a distributor directly or contact your local bike shop (LBS) to place a tool order for you. Either way, distributors sell things at 50% of the MSRP.
