Home Depot’s campus improvement grant program – Retool Your School – kicked off in 2009 with a simple mission: give back to our nation’s Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) by facilitating updates to campuses. Entering its ninth year, the program has far surpassed its initial goal, awarding $1.8 million through 490 grants. It supports a variety of projects for different schools, each one instilling a sense of ownership and community for those involved.
“Retool Your School is a catalyst for rallying the spirit of the community within the campus. It demonstrates there’s a tremendous amount of enthusiasm for the university as a whole,” says Rodner Wright, Florida A&M University (FAMU) provost and 2016 grant recipient.Click here to learn more.
