Funds Available for Students to Visit Lambert Castle Museum

Funds Available for Students to Visit Lambert Castle Museum

Out of the classroom enrichment activities are such an important part of a child’s education. With many of the school districts in our area experiencing funding constraints, these extra trips and programs are very often removed from the budget. However, the Passaic County Historical Society, in partnership with the Fred J. Brotherton Charitable Foundation has created a school trip grant program, beginning in September 2015, which was designed to assist schools by supplementing or fully funding school trips to Lambert Castle Museum in Paterson, New Jersey.

The Passaic County Historical Society would like to announce a new opportunity for local schools to visit Lambert Castle. Thanks to generous funding provided by the Fred J. Brotherton Charitable Foundation, the Society has created a school trip grant program. This program will allow schools to be reimbursed for the cost of transportation and admission to Lambert Castle museum for their students. All schools are eligible and funds will be dispersed on a first come basis. For more information about the program and how to apply, visit www.lambertcastle.org/school_trip_grant_program.html.

Passaic County Historical Society, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, was founded to cultivate interest among individuals and the community-at-large in the rich history of Passaic County. To this end our museum in Lambert Castle showcases examples of the County’s cultural and artistic diversity, as well as examples of the County’s natural, civil, military, and ecclesiastical history. The Society also maintains a library and archive, which houses manuscripts, books and photographs of historical and genealogical interest.

For more information on special events such as this one, visit the Passaic County Historical Society’s website at www.lambertcastle.org or call 973-247-0085.
