A Magic Cabinet Foundation from Seattle has awarded a grant of $418,000 to the Grays Harbor Historical Foundation. The grant is centered around supporting the Voyage of Explorers education programs for 4th-6th graders. The grant will also go towards a new position at the Grays Harbor Historical Foundation: one hour and three hour programs aboard the Lady Washington as well as the Hawaiin Chieftain.
The grants will be put towards scholarships for the Voyage of Explorers, and will also 85% of the per-student cost for the ship's impressive sailing programs. The full price for a student to attend the Voyage of Explorers is $35. With the assistance of the grant, if a school qualifies for the grant, a student pays $5.25 to attend the Voyage of Explorers program.
