Get on the Bus!

Over the past two years, we have seen a considerable rise in the transportation costs for the Title I schools that attend our field trips. This increase in cost is due to a shortage in school buses, drivers, and other related expenses. For this reason, Act One has had no other option than to book charter buses, which are three times more expensive than the average school bus. To maintain our full schedule of arts experiences for the rest of the 2022-23 school year, we need your help!

Act One has already enabled more than 10,000 children to experience the wonders of an arts field trip this school year. Get on the Bus! is an opportunity for you to ensure that an additional 12,000 students, are given the chance to learn from live arts field trips. We invite you to make an investment in the education and lifetime experiences of the children we serve.

Giving Possibilities:

  1. Any Amount! We appreciate your support of our mission!

  2. $500 ensures one bus of up to 50 students, get to their planned field trip.

  3. Gifts of $5,000 will receive photos of the student experience, an invite to attend one of the field trips they made possible, and recognition on our website, social media and in the Act One donor newsletter.

  4. Gifts of $10,000 or more will receive a commemorative Get on The Bus plaque, a student thank you, an invite to attend multiple field trips and naming recognition on multiple platforms as an ACT ONE BUS DRIVER for the possibilities their gift made for the children.
