Support for K-12 School and Community Projects
Lowe's Toolbox for Education Grant Program
The Toolbox for Education Grant Program, offered by Lowe’s Charitable and Educational Foundation, provides grants of $2,000 to $5,000 to public K-12 schools as well as school parent-teacher groups associated with public schools throughout the U.S. that develop projects to encourage parent involvement and build stronger community spirit. Preference is given to funding requests that have a permanent impact such as facility enhancement (both indoor and outdoor) and landscaping or clean up projects. This year the program is seeking ways to provide the tools that help educators and parent groups through these challenging times, with basic necessities taking priority. The fall 2014 application deadline is October 15; however, if 1,500 applications are received before the application deadline, the application process will close. Visit the program’s website to submit an online application.
