The Paul Revere’s Ride Fund at the Concord Museum provides curriculum-based, interactive education programs to students from schools that otherwise might not be able to afford the cost of a field trip to the Museum. With support from the Paul Revere’s Ride Fund, the Museum has successfully created a partnership with the public school systems in Lowell and Lawrence to bring high quality history education to their students.
During a typical school year, the Fund underwrites transportation and other program expenses so that over 3,500 students per year can immerse themselves in a stimulating history learning experience at the Museum completely free of charge. These students would otherwise not have the opportunity to touch stone artifacts dating back thousands of years, role play as Concord citizens from the Revolution, or learn about colonial cooking in a classroom with a working hearth – experiences that enrich their education well after their visits end.

A note about the 2020-2021 school year: Despite the coronavirus pandemic, the Concord Museum remains committed to providing free, high quality history programming to our partner school districts with innovative new virtual field trips and dedicated online content. This year, the Paul Revere’s Ride Fund is critical in our efforts to transition seamlessly to these new formats and continue providing exceptional educational experiences to students who need it most.
