Lowe’s Charitable and Educational Foundation Preservation Fund

This source is NOT FEDERAL, but could be used to match federal funding.

The Lowe’s Charitable and Educational Foundation (LCEF) preservation fund represents a partnership between the National Trust for Historic Preservation and the Lowe’s Charitable and Educational Foundation. Lowe’s desires to support the preservation of significant public properties in the communities it serves. To this end, the LCEF has provided funding to the National Trust for Historic Preservation, a national nonprofit organization that works to preserve historic sites and revitalize communities across America. The National Trust, through the LCEF preservation fund grant program, will use the funds to support historic preservation projects.

In 2010, a new pilot program will focus on historic school buildings that are being stabilized or restored, and that upon completion will be open to the public and serve the community. Grants are intended to further the restoration or rehabilitation of these buildings by providing funding for construction expenses. The maximum grant amount will be $50,000.

Grant applications must be postmarked by April 30, 2010.
