Critical need projects over $25,000 will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

    Lowe’s Community Partners Grants

    Lowe’s Community Partners grant program helps build better communities by providing monetary assistance to non-profit organizations and municipalities looking for support of high-need projects such as: building renovations/upgrades, grounds improvements, technology upgrades as well as safety improvements.


      Grants range from $5,000 to $100,000, with most projects falling between $10,000 and $25,000. Our Lowe’s Heroes employee volunteer program is another opportunity for support, which Lowe’s can provide to some grant recipients to help supplement the labor of projects. We encourage applicants to speak to their local store manager to see if this is a possibility before applying.
