About this funder:



Throughout the year, our stores provide education grants to local K-12 schools to support educational field trips. Learning opportunities extend far beyond the classroom, but it’s becoming more difficult for schools to fund trips to museums, historical sites and other cultural destinations. Since 2007, our Field Trip Grants program has made it possible for millions of students to go on a field trip.

Recipients may receive a grant only once in a given school year. Grants are to be used to cover field trip costs and fees. In the event the costs and fees are less than the grant amount, the balance of the grant may be utilized for other education costs such as materials, books and resources related to the curriculum. SPONSOR reserves the right to interpret these rules and to make decisions concerning the grant, its acceptance and use, in situations not covered by these rules.
