Apply for a Grant
Thank you for your interest in Lowe’s grant programs. Lowe’s and the Lowe’s Charitable and Educational Foundation focus giving efforts on public education and community improvement projects. We have two grant programs, Lowe’s Toolbox for Education and Lowe’s Community Partners.
Lowe’s Toolbox for Education Grants
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.
The fall application cycle will run August 1 – October 15, 2014.
Applicants will be notified within approximately 90 days of the deadline.
Lowe’s Community Partners Grants
Grants range from $5,000 to $100,000, with most projects falling between $10,000 and $25,000. Our Lowe’s Heroes employee volunteer program is another opportunity for support, which Lowe’s can provide to some grant recipients to help supplement the labor of projects. We encourage applicants to speak to their local store manager to see if this is a possibility before applying.
The spring application cycle will run March 31 — May 30, 2014.
The summer application cycle will run June 30 — Aug. 29, 2014.
