The “Let’s Go!” Field Trip Fund provides grant subsidies to support bus transportation for youth in under-resourced communities.

The “Let’s Go!” Field Trip Fund offers transportation subsidies to high need, low-income schools and youth-serving organizations that support students in those schools. Schools and Organizations within the 9 Bay Area Counties are eligible to apply.

The “Let’s Go!” Field Fund, formally known as the Transportation Fund (TF), launched in 2011 through a generous grant from the Environmental Education Funders Consortium.

Since its inception, the fund has provided field trips to over 50,000 low-income students in the San Francisco Bay Area! The “Let’s Go!” Field Trip Fund continues through local donations from active community funders. Most recently, the Transportation Fund was selected as a recipient of the Game Changer Grant by the 50 Fund, a philanthropic initiative of Super Bowl 50.
