Toledo Community Foundation Sponsors Raymer Elementary
Reed Fund of the Toledo Community Foundation sponsored visits for 4th grade students from Raymer Elementary in May 2014. Students had the opportunity to visit both the Hayes Home and Museum. The entire experience was part of the Hayes Presidential Centers Curriculum Connections program. Those who visited along with their students said "Students gained valuable knowledge. They would never get this chance without the support."
Curriculum Connections allows teachers and students to better connect with our nations past, Ohios history, and our local history while addressing Ohios Social Studies and English/Language Arts Academic Standards. The program finds sponsors, like The Reed Fund of the Toledo Community Foundation, that are willing to cover admission and/or transportation costs for school children to visit the Hayes Presidential Center.
Hayes Presidential Center Development Director Kathy Boukissen is seeking additional sponsors for school systems that do not have adequate funding for a visit. For more information about Curriculum Connections or to donate to the program contact Kathy at 419-332-2081, ext. 226 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
