The Home Depot ‘Retool Your School’ campaign benefits Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) is in full swing. In 2021, they are investing $1 Million in 2021. “This year, 30 HBCUs will win their share of $1,000,000.”

As a proud graduate of an HBCU, I look at Stillman College as my HBCU away from home. So many Stillman attributes remind me of my Dear Ole’ Bethune-Cookman. Kudos to The Home Depot because they said they are “dedicated to continuing our commitment, celebrating the legacy and pride of HBCUs.”

If you didn’t know, The Home Depot has a history of giving towards HBCUs. “Since 2009, The Home Depot has invested more than $3.1 million dollars to update, upgrade, and uplift HBCU campuses.” You know this warms my soul.

There will be thirty campus improvement grants awarded based on votes from the public. Also, “One grant for the Campaign of the Year Award will be awarded to the school whose campaign proves to be most original, innovative, and particularly effective.”

They have broken the voting contest into three groups. “Cluster 1, which includes those Respondents with a student enrollment of 4,000 or more; Cluster 2, which includes those Respondents with a student enrollment between 1,201 and 3,999; and Cluster 3, which includes those Respondents with a student enrollment of 1,200 or less.” Click here for the clusters.

Let’s help Stillman rank higher on the leader board. Currently, (at the time of this story) they are sitting at #13. It took me about 20 seconds to vote.
