Field Trip New Jersey: Grant Opportunity
Field trips have the power to awaken, hush, awe, enrich and change lives of our children by taking students out of familiar surroundings into new places, connecting classroom learning with real-life experiences and enabling them to envision themselves as future college students, researchers, artists, and leaders. But it has become difficult for schools to fund learning opportunities outside schools.
The Pi Chubb Field Trip Fund, established in honor of long-time Victoria Foundation leader Percy Chubb, will ensure that children in Newark experience the transformative power of field trips for years to come. This is a pool of funds provided by Victoria Foundation and managed by the Community Foundation of New Jersey to support new and enriching experiences for Newark youth.
