Grant

Award

  • Award Min: $2,000.00
  • Award Max: $100,000.00
  • Quantity: Unknown

Timing

  • Deadline: Oct 15, 2014

Eligibility:
The Foundation provides funding only to 501(c) (3) tax-exempt
nonprofit organizations and public agencies in communities where
Lowe’s operates stores and distribution centers. 



Lowe's Charitable and Educational Foundation requires that
all applicants take an eligibility test. Organizations that pass
will be considered, but not guaranteed a grant. LCEF receives far
more requests than it can accommodate. Many times, requests that
pass the eligibility test and fall within the stated guidelines are
not approved. 


Purpose:

Through our support for public education, we’re closing
the funding gap facing many schools today. Each year, the
Lowe’s Toolbox for Education grants program contributes
more than $5 million to fund improvements at public schools in the
United States.


Projects should fall into one of the following categories:
technology upgrades, tools for STEM programs, facility renovations
and safety improvements. Grant requests can range from $2,000 to
$100,000. A large majority of grants will be given in the $2,000 to
$5,000 range. Most larger projects fall between $10,000 and
$25,000. Critical need projects over $25,000 will be considered on
a case-by-case basis.
