Lowe’s Educational Foundation is Making Grants!

Lowe’s Charitable and Education Foundation has announced the opening of its Spring 2015 Toolbox for Education, an initiative aimed at supporting projects that encourage parent involvement in local schools and help build community spirit.

One-year grants of up to $5,000 will be awarded in support of projects that have a permanent impact on a school community, such as a facility enhancement (indoor or outdoor) or landscaping/clean-up project. Toolbox grants also can be used as part of a larger-scale project as long as the funds are used to complete a phase of the project achievable within twelve months of the award date.

To be eligible, applicants must be a public K-12 school or nonprofit parent group associated with such a school. Parent groups (PTO, PTA, etc.) applying for a grant must have an independent EIN and official 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status.  The web address is http://www.toolboxforeducation.com.
