The Foundation believes strongly that classroom learning is enhanced by giving students opportunities to encounter authentic pieces of history, culture, science, music, nature, and the arts.
The Foundation further understands that money for field trips has been limited by District budget cuts. The Foundation is honored to partner with corporate funder, Hills Bank & Trust Company, to underwrite the costs associated with providing teachers and students the ability to engage in valuable learning experiences outside the walls of the classroom.
These grants are non-competitive. However, they are also first come/first served. When the annual budget has been expended, the program will close until the next school year. Apply early!
NOTE: No reward field trips (ie: AirFX, Waterpark, etc.). All field trip requests must be curriculum based.
