We Fund Experiences
Since our inception we've granted over $100,000 for the students at Marion Cross Elementary School.
The Milton Frye Fund was established in June 1996 to honor Milt Frye’s twenty-three years of service as principal of the Marion Cross School. The purpose of the fund is to support special learning experiences for the children at the Marion Cross School. Mr. Frye feels strongly that experiential learning is an important avenue for every child and essential for some as experience makes learning come alive.
Some of the diverse experiences we've funded include:
Drum Circle Caterpillar Lab 5th Grade River Day Kinder KOOP Space
Master Storytellers Motoko Dworkin and Eshu Bumpus School Gardens Oregon Trail
6th Grade Maine Ecology School Trip Nature Area Outdoor Classroom Shelter
Hulbert Trips Mary Holland's Fantastic Foxes and Naturally Curious Think 3D
