Our signature education grant program is Lowe’s Toolbox for Education® (Toolbox). The Toolbox program provides schools and communities with the necessary resources to make improvements where they’re needed most. Our grants enable schools to make renovations and safety enhancements as well as upgrade technology and learning materials. Since the program began in 2006, we’ve provided more than $42 million in grants to improve 9,600 schools across the country. As a result, more than 5 million schoolchildren have benefited.
Each year, we provide nearly $5 million in Toolbox grants for K–12 public schools around the United States. Our need-based grants range in size from $2,000 to $100,000, and as many as 1,000 schools can benefit in any given year. In 2014, Toolbox provided $4.6 million in financial assistance for enhancements at 1,103 schools in 49 U.S. states.
Lowe’s Heroes also lent a hand, volunteering their time and
expertise to these commitments along the way.
