In just one day, we want to raise $9000 to pay for the field trip admission for 1300 Canton City School District 2nd and 3rd graders, as soon as it is safe for field trips to happen again —and we can’t do it without you.

Each year on #GivingTuesday, nonprofit organizations rally their supporters for a day of maximum impact. Following the retail events of Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday provides an opportunity for people around the world to support what matters most to them and share that support with their social media networks.

 

Any additional funds we raise for #GivingTuesday will be placed in the Christopher J. Kenney Memorial Bus Fund, which provides scholarships to cover the cost of field trip transportation to underprivileged schools. It was one of Chris’s dreams to increase access to our museum by removing the barriers that exist in funding transportation for field trips. His legacy will live on as we award bus scholarships each year to schools who would not normally be able to visit.
