LOWE’S NATIONAL EAGLE SCOUT PROJECT IMPACT GRANT
Denver Area Council is the recipient of a grant of 69 $100 prepaid Lowe’s gift cards to be used towards Eagle Scout Service Projects. Cards must be used at Lowe’s to purchase building materials and equipment for the project. Cards are available until the supply is depleted in 2012, first come/first serve – one per scout, and are good at any Lowe’s location. This program is in lieu of Scouts soliciting local Lowe’s stores for donations.
To qualify for a $100 Lowe’s gift card a Scout must:
Be a registered Life Scout
Complete and submit the Lowe’s grant application to Denver Area Council.
Be sure the Eagle Scout Service Project has all approvals before the work begins. The scout further agrees to display the Lowe’s National Eagle Scout Project Impact grant sign at his project site.
Copies of pages 6 through 10 of workbook must be submitted with the grant application to the Denver Area Council – Programs (a separate Fundraising Application is still required but not submitted with the Grant Application)
If approved, the gift card and sign must be picked up at Council headquarters.
The scout must continue to use the Eagle Scout Service Project Workbook to document the results of the Service Project, and make photographs and all documentation available to our Council for sharing with Lowe’s.
Cards with any unused value must be returned to the Council to then be returned to Lowe’s. Use of the card for purposes other than Eagle Projects will result in taxable-income for the recipient.
