Fill-a-Bus Lets Donors Bring Students on Field Trips
It’s the time of year for giving thanks, and we are so thankful for the generosity of our community of donors and supporters! As you plan your end-of-year donations, please consider how your gift to Act One can help students experience the arts. It costs an average of $10 per student for an Act One field trip. Since 50 students will fill a bus, every $500 donated funds a busload of excited children ready for an adventure through the arts.
To take our highest number ever of 51,000 students and chaperones on Act One field trips, we will need 975 buses! Transportation costs alone will increase this year by $20,000. To help us cover those costs, an anonymous donor will add 25% to all gifts through December 31 until we reach this goal.
A monthly gift of just $42 will fill a bus and bring 50 students on an arts field trip!
