The Community Foundation of the Hudson Valley

The Community Foundation of the Hudson Valley offers grants for public schools in Dutchess and Ulster Counties who need funds to help take students on a field trip. Field trips must be tied to an educational curricula and enhance classroom learning opportunities. Teachers should seek funding from their school/district first. If that source is insufficient, they may then request money from the fund. Grant money can be used to cover the costs of transportation, admission, or to help defray the costs of students who do not have the ability to pay for their portion of the cost. Funding priority will be given to high needs schools/districts.
