Lowe’s Invests $4 Million In Two North Carolina Colleges

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Lowe’s says it is investing $4 million toward new partnerships with two North Carolina universities.

News outlets report Queens University of Charlotte announced Lowe’s is providing $2.5 million for the Charlotte Talent Initiative, which is a partnership between Mecklenburg County businesses and the college to expand Charlotte’s talent pipeline and help low-income graduates of local high schools.

N.C. Central University in Durham, a historically Black college, says it’s receiving a $1.5 million gift from Lowe’s for the college’s School of Business.

That includes placing Lowe’s name on the auditorium at the business school now under construction and a new academic program.
