15% of Doors Open funding will be directed to public school students. This would mean approximately $12 million dollars to fund school partnerships. This will help support the programs being cut to balance school budgets. Currently, our schools are making heart-breaking decisions to make ends meet. Doors Open will help. Beyond that 15%, significant additional program funds for public school students will be available in the form of field trips; before and after school programs; student transportation and admission costs; youth internships; free or reduced cost ticket programs; and more.
More than 500 science, heritage, and arts organizations will receive this funding, and every one of them have programs that reach out beyond their buildings and into their communities throughout King County.
