Thanks to the amazing number of non-profit organizations stepping up to help their neighbors, our community giving goals have been reached and the program is now CLOSED for 2017. The 2018 program will OPEN on February 1, 2018.
While our program typically operates on a rolling 12-month cycle, grants are awarded on a first-come first-serve basis until funding is exhausted. For non-profits who have submitted an application but have not received a response, your application will be reviewed and you will still receive a decision email within the 4-6 week processing window
The Home Depot Foundation offers grants, up to $5,000, to IRS-registered 501c designated organizations and tax-exempt public service agencies in the U.S. that are using the power of volunteers to improve the physical health of their community. Grants are given in the form of The Home Depot gift cards for the purchase of tools, materials, or services.
Our primary goal is to provide grants and volunteer opportunities to support the renovation, refurbishment, retrofitting, accessibility modifications, and/or weatherization of existing homes, centers, schools and other similar facilities.
Only IRS-registered 501c designated organizations and tax-exempt public service agencies (e.g. Police/Fire Departments) in the U.S. are eligible to apply. (Proof of this status will be required on the application in the form of an IRS Determination Letter, Form 990, or W9.)
Grants must support work completed by community volunteers in the U.S.
Projects must be completed within six months following notification that the grant has been awarded.
