Lowes Eagle Grants

for information on grants for 2013

Home improvement retailer Lowe's has teamed with the Boy Scouts of America to provide the Lowe's National Eagle Scout Project Impact grant for candidates working on their Eagle Scout project.

 

About the Grant:

  A generous contribution from the Lowe's Charitable and Educational Foundation has made it possible for local councils to present selected Eagle Scout candidates with a $100 prepaid gift card to be used toward their service projects.

Life Scouts who are planning a construction-based project may apply. During 2012 cards will be distributed two times: July 1 (Applications must be submitted by Friday, June 1) and September 1 (Applications must be submitted by Friday, August 3).

A committee of volunteers and professionals will determine which projects qualify for a Lowe's grant. Recipients will be required to pick up the card from the Council Service Center, in uniform (so as a photo may be taken), within 5 days of the allocation. Cards must be used to purchase building materials and equipment for the Eagle candidate's service project. The gift card may be used at any Lowe's location or any place that Discover it is accepted.

 

Qualifications:

  To qualify for a Lowe's National Eagle Scout Project Impact grant, the individual must:

1.    Be a registered Life Scout.

2.    Have an approved Eagle Scout Project. Only projects that have all the appropriate approvals will be considered.

3.    Complete and submit the Lowe’s Grant Application.

4.    Be sure the Eagle Scout service project has all approvals before the work begins.

5.    Use the Eagle Scout Service Project Workbook to document the results of the service project. Make photographs and all documentation available to the BSA for sharing with Lowe's.

6.    Project must be completed with final paperwork submitted by December 1.

 

Things You Should Know:

▪    If you plan to spend your gift card at a Lowe's location, you should consider speaking with the local store manager when you arrive. This will help Lowe's track how well the program is being received.

▪    Document your project with "before" and "after" photographs. Be sure photographs show how the materials and equipment purchased with the gift card were used for your service project.
