In-kind grants of paint to USA K-12 schools seeking to energize the classroom environment. Preference will be given to schools serving low-income and underserved children. Schools are eligible to receive up to 40 gallons of paint. The purpose of this program is to improve student attitudes and academic performance by creating a clean and energetic classroom environment.

The True Value Foundation and its retail partners provides grants of up to 40 gallons of paint through the Painting a Brighter Future program to more than 100 schools each year.

Schools may select one of the paint colors offered through the program. Review available colors in the Color Selection Guide (attached below).

Your school must be a public, private or parochial school in a community served by a True Value Company retail identity (True Value, Grand Rental Station, Taylor Rental, Just Ask Rental, Home & Garden Showplace, Party Central and Induserve Supply).

Your school must serve children in any grade between kindergarten and grade 12.

Applications meeting the initial criteria will be reviewed in depth and evaluated using additional criteria:

-Does the school serve a low-income population or operate in an underserved community?

-What is the condition of the school building and how long has it been since the proposed area of the school has been painted?

-Has the school identified other resources that, when added to a paint grant, will multiply the impact of a paint grant overall?

-Do included "before" photos adequately indicate the real need for paint?

Applications are due by December 16, 2016.

If your school receives a grant, both the school and sponsoring True Value retailer will be notified. The local True Value store will deliver the paint to the school.
