Thanks in large part to private donations, the Chesapeake Bay Foundation can offer student programs at rates that are much lower than the actual operating costs of our programs.
Maryland schools: The Maryland State Department of Education has provided CBF with a grant that subsidizes the cost of our programs for Maryland schools to $220 per day for a one-day program. For more information, please contact EducationCoordinator@cbf.org or call 800-445-5572.
Also, the Chesapeake Bay Trust, funded by "Treasure the Chesapeake" license plates, supplies schools with grants for environmental projects and field trips. For further information on their application procedure, contact the Chesapeake Bay Trust, 60 West Street, Annapolis, MD 21401; 410-974-2941. cbtrust.org
Virginia schools: The Virginia Naturally Classrooms Grant of $500, $750 or $1,000 is available for the purpose of conducting field studies with students. The application is simple to fill out and available online: www.dcr.virginia.gov/virginia_naturally/.
All Schools/School Groups: Due to cuts in state funding, we are not offering reduced rates on all programs. CBF will subsidize groups in need as much as possible. Please contact the Education Coordinator to request a reduced rate. EducationCoordinator@cbf.org
