Ames Tool Grant Program

by Jane Waugh
February 01, 2021

National Garden Club, Inc.’s grant program with The Ames Companies, Inc. began in 2014. The Ames Companies has generously agreed to extend its in-kind grant program for 2021.

Now is the time to apply; the application deadline is March 1, 2021. Take advantage of this benefit of being an NGC member garden club. You may select tools up to a retail value of $250 for your community garden or garden therapy club project. Details may be found under “Awards & Grants-Ames Tools.” Select “Resources and Forms” to find the application and the tool Item Selection List. Many tools are appropriate for children or gardeners who prefer a cushion grip handle.

Garden tools with a total retail value of $4,500 are available for NGC gardening projects. Gardening programs performed or supported by NGC local member clubs and scheduled to be carried out March 1 through September 30, 2021 are eligible. Projects may be a joint venture with another organization, however the garden club applying must be a member of NGC. Awarded tools will be shipped to the successful applicants in May of this year.
