Fossil Fuel Fund
To demonstrate our commitment to continue bringing students to the museum, CMM has established the Fossil Fuel Fund. The Fund provides field trip assistance to regional schools to help alleviate the cost of bus transportation to and from the museum.
The Fossil Fuel Fund is supported through a grant from Washington Gas, which has made a lasting impact on the communities in which they serve through direct contributions, in-kind support, and volunteer resources. This partnership is another way that they serve the community.
