Jefferson Academy Middle School is seeking $5,000 to help pay for its graduating 8th grade class to visit college campuses in Philadelphia, New York City and Princeton, N.J.
“We are fundraising money to help pay for transportation,” assistant principal Christina Lee wrote online. “Covering transportation will help ensure that more students are able to attend the trip.”
Since the trip’s GoFundMe page launched in April, $650 has been raised by 11 donors. In order to attend the class trip, each student and their family must also contribute $200.
For donating $50, contributors will receive a T-shirt. Additionally, the first 50 donors who contribute at least $100 will receive a teddy bear.
Last year, Jefferson Academy Middle School’s 8th grade class visited the campuses of the University of Virginia and Hampton University in Virginia.
