[posted from RFP Bulletin]
Lowe’s Toolbox for Education Grant Program Accepting Applications for 2006-2007 School Year
Deadline: October 15, 2006 and February 15, 2007
To empower parents and further encourage their involvement in their children’s schools, Lowe’s Charitable and Educational Foundation has established the Lowe’s Toolbox for Education grant program to fund school improvement projects initiated by parents. Lowe’s will donate a total of $5 million to schools and school parent teacher groups at more than 1,000 different schools in 2006 and 2007.
Any nonprofit K-12 school (including charter, parochial, private, etc.) or parent group (associated with a nonprofit K-12 school) that has a group tax ID number and official 501(c)(3) status from the IRS is eligible to apply. Parent groups that do not have 501(c)(3) status should apply through their school.
Projects that encourage parent involvement and build stronger community spirit will be favored.
Up to $5,000 per school is available. The grant deadlines are October 15, 2006 and February 15, 2007. The program will only be accepting 1,500 applications per grant period. The application process will be closed once the program has received 1,500 applications, which could be before the deadline date. Applicants are encouraged to submit their applications early to be sure they are considered to receive a grant.
