Description: 

Lowe's Toolbox for Education to Support Parent-Teacher Group Projects. As part of its continued support for public education, Lowe's Companies, Inc. has announced that its new Toolbox for Education program will award grants to parent-teacher organizations and parent-teacher associations for improvement projects at up to 1,000 schools across the United States. Launched in partnership with PTO Today, an organization serving parent-teacher groups, Toolbox for Education will provide grants of up to $5,000 for a wide range of efforts, including public school libraries, specialty learning labs, landscaping, painting projects, and playgrounds. Grants are still available for the 2005-06 school year. PTO Today will provide a variety of resources to help parent groups apply for the grants. Resources available include a toll-free support line and staff to answer program questions and online materials on the best practices for applying for grant money. Post-project follow-up will include helping report project success and impact on the school community served. Parent groups at K-12 schools may apply for grants of up to $5,000. All K-12 schools in the United States (except Puerto Rico) are eligible. Applicant schools or parent groups must have a group tax ID number or official 501(c)(3) status from the IRS. Eligibility: Any individual public K-12 school or non-profit parent group associated with that public K-12 school. Parent groups that are applying (PTO, PTA, etc.) must have an independent EIN and official 501c(3) status from the IRS. If your group does not have 501c(3) status, please apply through your school. Pre-schools are not eligible. Deadlines: Yearly
