||between $2,000 and $5,000
|What is Funded
||For more than 65 years, Lowe's has supported the communities we call home. At a time when schools are struggling to support the basic needs of their students, the Lowe's Charitable and Educational Foundation recognizes the importance of financial support.
This year LCEF is seeking ways to provide the tools to help educators and parent groups through educational challenges by providing the greatest impact. Projects should fall into one of the following categories: technology upgrades, tools for STEM programs, facility renovations and safety improvements.
Please keep this focus in mind as you apply for a Lowe's Toolbox for Education® grant in the 2015-2016 academic year. Thank you.
