Giving Tuesday is a global movement that celebrates the joy of giving back to your community, amid the hustle and bustle of the holiday season. This Global Day of Giving will take place on November 28th, the Tuesday after Thanksgiving and Black Friday. The National Corvette Museum prides itself on giving back to the local community in Bowling Green, and with your help, we can do exactly that!
In recent years, we saw our Fund A Field Trip campaign come to fruition. This campaign allows us to offset the cost of field trips to the National Corvette Museum for local school groups in underserved areas. Unfortunately, with budget cuts and school funding shortages, many students in our community do not have the opportunity to take field trips. The National Corvette Museum is committed to the needs of all students and educators who want to visit, and we’re asking for your assistance in removing some of the financial roadblocks.
Our Fund A Field Trip campaign co-aligned with the opening of our McMichael Family Education Gallery this year. The exhibit allows the museum to provide a state-of-the-art educational experience geared directly to the next generation of Corvette enthusiasts, engineers, designers, and more.
We have a goal of raising $15,000 during Giving Tuesday for our Fund a Field Trip program. If this goal is met, it will help sustain our campaign until 2026. This sustainability goal is made possible through the gracious donation to this campaign by Elfi’s Silver Pearl Sisterhood earlier this year.
Please consider helping us Fund a Field Trip for a group of deserving students. Your tax-deductible gift can be life-changing for those visiting our Museum, and can inspire a child who might otherwise have been denied the opportunity to get a glimpse of what it could be like to become an engineer or a future Corvette designer.
We offer various donation methods to make it as convenient as possible for you. Donate online by using our Fund A Field Trip form on our website, by phone, or in person at the National Corvette Museum. All donations are tax-deductible, and individuals who donate will receive their donation documentation before the end of tax season.
