FRIENDS OF BALBOA PARK wrote -For many school children in the past, the 5th grade program was their introduction to the museums and to Balboa Park. Friends of Balboa Park have been working closely with San Diego Unified School District to give current and future children this same opportunity. The Learning Intensive Field Trip (LIFT) programs will depend on the availability of outside funding.
And that's where you come in!
Friends of Balboa Park is raising funds for bus transportation. At $185/bus, the annual need to get school children into the Park for one day/week will be $40,000 per year for all San Diego 5th graders. We are looking to provide funding for 20 buses of school children, to give each child an experience they will never forget. Thank you!
