Community Foundation of Hudson Valley offers grants to K-12 teachers in Dutchess and Ulster counties.
Let’s face it, school budgets do not have an endless supply of money to support field trips. However, field trips can give your students an opportunity to see new thinks and learn about them in an unstructured way. The grant process takes a few minutes and is very simple. This is a wonderful opportunity from the Community Foundation!
Trips must be part of curriculum.
Field trips must occur during regular school hours.
Two grants per school allowed.
Allowable expenses include: transportation, admissions and help for students with financial need.
Trips outside the classroom this year? Teachers, if your answer is no, Target stores can help you and your students. It is because Target stores believe that some of the best learning opportunities happen outside the classroom they are offering money for trips. As a result of their funding they believe that students will have a once-in-a-lifetime learning experience through classroom field trips. K-12 schools nationwide can apply for grants valued at $700. Apply today!
Who is eligible for a grant?
Teachers working in K-12, public, private or charter schools in the U.S. can apply. Schools must have a 501(c)(3) or 509(a)(1) tax-exempt status to apply. The educator must plan and execute a fieldtrip that provides a learning experience for students. Preschools and home schools are not eligible to apply.
