Title 1 Schools:
Are you a Title I School in need of field trip assistance? At Thanksgiving Point, we believe curriculum-related field trips provide a valuable learning experience for your students. Each year, many generous donors provide assistance to Title I Schools by funding field trip scholarships.
With this support, Thanksgiving Point is offering field trip assistance to all Title I Schools (grades K-12) who apply for a scholarship. Students of an entire grade level per selected school will receive scholarships to attend a Thanksgiving Point field trip at one Thanksgiving Point venue for FREE.
