Student Education Fund Request

The Student Education Fund was established in 2019 thanks to the generous contributions from friends of Sauder Village who believe in the educational value of the Sauder Village experience for students.  While Sauder Village offers attractive discounted student group admission rates, budgetary constraints make financing field trips and special programs a challenge for many schools. 

This special fund is available to qualified schools wishing to schedule field trips or special programs with Sauder Village. Teachers can apply to be considered for partial or full funding of admission or program fees, based on the need of their student population.  

Schools eligible for support will be considered based on the following:

  • Percentage of students participating in free and reduced lunch program 
  • Percentage of students at or below the poverty level 
  • Commitment to a 5:1 student to adult chaperone ratio for onsite field trips
  • Teacher plans for incorporating field trip & program experiences in classroom activities 
  • Teacher/Student willingness to participate in thanking donors and sharing impact stories
  • Availability of dollars in the fund
