Regional school districts are encouraged to apply for transportation funding to visit Flight 93 National Memorial thanks to generous educational grants from Pirates Charities and the Penguins Foundation.
The Friends of Flight 93 National Memorial, the official nonprofit partner of Flight 93 National Memorial, received $25,000 from Pirates Charities and $10,000 from the Penguins Foundation to support expanded educational programming at the memorial.
The educational programming at Flight 93 includes lesson plans geared towards fourth and fifth grade, sixth through eighthgrade and grade levels nine through twelve, respectively, with a focus on themes of action, honor and teamwork.
