Field Trip Scholarship Fund
Thank you to Propel Insurance and all those who contributed to the Historical Society's 2018 Field Trip Scholarship Fund. Because of your generosity, 1,342 students will be able to experience a History Museum Fied Trip for FREE!
If you didn't have a chance to contribute before the campaign ended on October 31, but you would still like to participate, please contact Camille.Perezselsky@wshs.wa.gov to make a gift. Thank you!
How would your life be different if you had never discovered your love for history? Would your perspective be more limited? Would your awareness of the struggles and joys of those that came before you be as vivid?
Unfortunately, this is the case for thousands of students across Washington. Many schools lack the resources to send their students on field trips, so many kids may never experience the Washington State History Museum, right in their own back yard.
YOU can change that! Share your love of history with another generation by sending students on a FREE field trip to the History Museum. Your gift today will provide low-income schools with the funds to bring children to the museum free of charge, and offers these students a truly compelling learning experience.
- $15 will provide one student from a low income school a chance to step on a covered wagon and learn about the families who made the journey to the West.
- $75 will bring five students to experience the History Lab and dive deep into examining artifacts.
- $450 will allow a teacher to bring an entire class to the museum, adding a sense of realism that kids can't get at school.
Field trips are good for students. Studies show that field trip experiences boost critical thinking skills and increase empathy and tolerance. Your support will help kids engage with history and enhance their education in important ways.
Thank you for helping students in our community to discover how history connects us all.
