Field Trip Fund

Affordable tickets for school-kids

The Bardavon has a long history of giving all children and their families the chance to attend quality arts performances at affordable prices. With regular cuts in public school budgets for arts education and field-trips, the need for reduced-price tickets and transportation subsidies has only grown stronger. So, the Bardavon is stepping up the effort to reach as many children as possible through our Field Trip Fund.  The field trip fund underwrites ticket costs for children who would not be able to come to these performances otherwise!

And now, thanks to a generous matching grant from one of our long-time Major Donors, your gift to the Field-Trip Fund will be worth double!

A gift of $1,000 will help 666 students (elementary through high school) attend a live arts performance at the Bardavon or UPAC. For many of these kids, field trips to one of our Daytime Series productions may be their only exposure to a live arts performance in a given year!

Shows like Dinosaur Petting Zoo from Australia, Paige in Full from Baltimore, and the HVP’s Young People’s Concerts offer valuable experiences that create lasting positive impressions for thousands every year.

Your gift to the Field-Trip Fund will help us continue to reach Hudson Valley kids with beautiful, engaging performances that will stay with them for a lifetime.
