Lowe’s Charitable and Education Foundation Accepting Applications for Toolbox for Education Grants

The Lowe’s Charitable and Education Foundation has announced the opening of its Fall 2018 Toolbox for Education, which supports projects that encourage parent involvement in local schools and build stronger community spirit.

To that end, one-year grants of up to $5,000 will be awarded in support of projects such as facility enhancement (indoor or outdoor) or landscaping/clean-up projects that have a permanent impact on a school community. In addition, Toolbox grants can be used as part of a large-scale project like a new playground build, as long as the grant funds are used to complete a phase of the project that can be completed within twelve months of the award.

To be eligible for a grant, applicants must be a public K-12 school or nonprofit parent group associated with a public K-12 school. Parent groups that are applying (PTO, PTA, etc.) must have an independent EIN and official 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status. Preschools are not eligible.

The application process will be closed after fifteen hundred applications have been received.

Complete application instructions and program guidelines, as well as lists of past grant recipients, are available on the Toolbox for Education website.

Deadline: September 28, 2018
