Over the past five years, Lowe’s “Toolbox for Education “ program has provided almost $25 million to more than 5,000 schools across the country. Five million dollars is available for the 2012-13 school year; grant requests must be between $2,000 and $5,000 and will be accepted until October 12, or until 1,500 requests have been received. The grants must be used within the year they are received.

According to the company’s webpages, “There is a preference for funding requests that have a permanent impact such as facility enhancement (both indoor and outdoor) as well as landscaping/clean up type projects. Projects that encourage parent involvement and build stronger community spirit will be favored. Please note the grant money cannot be used to pay for memorials, stipends, salaries, artists in residence, field trips, scholarships, or third party funding. Only 10% of any award granted can be used toward outside resources such as labor, installation, consultation, and delivery.”
