Kohl’s To Fund Field Trips For Milwaukee-Area Schools

Stocks in this article: KSS

Kohl’s Department Stores (NYSE: KSS) today announced the launch of the Kohl’s Cares Field Trip Grant Program which will provide $750,000 in funding to eligible schools throughout the metro-Milwaukee area to help cover the cost of field trips during the 2013/2014 school year. The donation comes from Kohl’s philanthropic program, Kohl’s Cares®, which sells special merchandise, including plush toys and books, and donates 100 percent of the net profit to benefit children’s health and education initiatives nationwide.

“Kohl’s has long been committed to supporting children’s educational initiatives in communities nationwide. Here in our hometown of Milwaukee, Kohl’s is proud to help children continue to learn and grow by increasing access to valuable experiential learning through the Kohl’s Cares Field Trip Grant Program,” said Kevin Mansell, Kohl’s chairman, president and chief executive officer. “Kohl’s has amazing partners and educational programs throughout Milwaukee, and we are excited to showcase those terrific partners by offering them as field trip destinations for our local schools. We are thrilled to be able to help our Milwaukee-area children experience some of the best-in-class educational resources our community has to offer.”

The Kohl’s Cares Field Trip Grant Program will allow local schools to take advantage of engaging, educational opportunities outside the classroom without the extra cost. The grants will cover the additional expenses schools incur when arranging student field trips, including admission fees (including incremental workshops), transportation, substitute teacher fees and materials required for the experience.

As part of Kohl’s long history of charitable involvement and partnership with premier organizations in its hometown of Milwaukee, Kohl’s is committed to creating meaningful learning opportunities for area children. Grants received through the Kohl’s Cares Field Trip Grant Program will allow teachers to enhance classroom curriculum by visiting Kohl’s education programs with several of its partner organizations including: Betty Brinn Children’s Museum, Discovery World, Junior Achievement of Wisconsin, Milwaukee Art Museum, and the Milwaukee County Zoo.
