Lowe’s Toolbox for Education Accepting Applications for K-12 Public School Projects
Deadline: October 15, 2010

Applications are being accepted for the Fall 2010 cycle of the Lowe’s Charitable and Educational Foundation Toolbox for Education grant program.

Through the program, Lowe’s will donate a total of $5 million to U.S. public schools and public school parent teacher groups at more than one thousand public schools. For the 2010-11 program, the Lowe’s Charitable and Educational Foundation will focus on basic, one-time project needs.

Any individual nonprofit public K-12 school or parent group associated with a nonprofit public K-12 school is eligible to apply. Parent groups (PTO, PTA, etc.) that are applying must have an independent tax ID number and official 501(c)(3) status from the IRS. Groups that do not have 501(c)(3) status should apply through their school. Applicant schools must be at least two years old. Preschools are not eligible.

The program prioritizes funding requests that have a permanent impact such as facility enhancement (both indoor and outdoor) as well as landscaping/cleanup-type projects. Projects that encourage parent involvement and build stronger community spirit will be favored.

Grants may be requested for amounts between $2,000 and $5,000.

The deadline for submitting applications for this grant cycle is October 15, 2010. If 1,500 applications are received before the application deadline, however, the application process will be closed.
