At The Home Depot Foundation, we understand the impact of hard work and sweat equity. We live it every day through Team Depot.  We also understand the value of neighbors giving up their time, rolling up their shirtsleeves and getting dirty to improve their community. Each year, we support these special neighborhood efforts through our Community Impact Grants.

From now through August 13, nonprofit organizations that are interested in using volunteers to help improve their community for veterans and their families can apply for a grant up to $5,000, provided in Home Depot gift cards, to purchase tools, materials or services from The Home Depot.

See what our 2012 Community Impact Grant recipients are saying:

Liberty Manor for Veterans – Tampa, FL

“On behalf of the veterans at Liberty Manor, I would like to express our sincere appreciation to you for the benevolent donation that you made to our honorably discharged veterans. Your efforts certainly merit a Certificate of Appreciation and we are proud to recognize you for your generosity. These are former soldiers who have served our country, fought for our independence, and today, fallen victim to homelessness. This initiative offers us the grand opportunity to pay homage in a significant way. All contributions made to the Liberty Manor initiative are sure to be enjoyed for years to come as we are investing in a soldiers future.”

Arizona Art Alliance – Phoenix, AZ

“Thank you again for support of our new Veteran Outreach Program. Since our Ribbon Cutting Event, we have been asked by several organizations to help honor our veterans including the city of Phoenix by displaying veterans art around the community and in City Hall. Much of this notoriety is due to your grant, making it possible to provide a large classroom for purposes of applying the healing qualities of art to veterans. We are grateful to The Home Depot Foundation team for their generosity and supporting our veterans.”

Easter Seals New Hampsire – Manchester, NH

“On behalf of Easter Seals NH, thank you for the generous award in Home Depot gift cards to help us provide veterans vital home repair and weatherization services. This gift came at a critical time as veterans were preparing for winter weather. Military families often have emergencies that occur before or during employment and that leave their spouses to deal with them alone. The Home Depot Foundation’s support assisted in providing a quick resolution to the critical housing needs faced by service members, such as plumbing and roof repairs, winterization of homes, flood damage clean up, and repairs of snow blowers.”

Join us and help create a safe, comfortable and stable community where veterans can succeed. To apply for a 2013 Community Impact Grant now, click here.
