We need you onboard! Help us support more students in the 2016-17 school year through our Storytelling and Bookmaking Field Trips.
The MOI Board of Directors has created a $3,000 matching fund for our field trip program. These field trips offer 2nd-4th grade students an opportunity to learn collaboratively and publish a book, complete with professional illustrations. Our Storytelling and Bookmaking Field Trip is offered 100% free-of-cost to our partnering schools.
This program costs $25 per student. For every $25 you donate, we will match your contribution to cover the expense of TWO students. If we are able to meet the match through this campaign, 240 students will be able to attend a Storytelling and Bookmaking Field Trip at NO COST to them and their families.
In return, we will send you a completed field trip book. These books are zany, creative, fun and, most importantly, they provide a glimpse into the thoughtful imaginations of Twin Cities youths.
