In celebration of the Retool Your School Program’s 10-year anniversary, The Home Depot has increased its support of the Program and HBCUs by offering ten $50,000 campus improvement grants.

The Home Depot strives to give back to our nation’s Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) what they have so generously given to their communities – a strong foundation, renewed purpose, and distinctive character.

Since 2009, the Retool Your School Program has provided over 2.1 million dollars in campus improvement grants that allow HBCUs to make sustainable improvements to their campuses.
