Kohl’s Department Stores (NYSE: KSS) today announced the second year of the
Kohl’s Cares Field Trip Grant Program, giving more than $1.5 million in

“The Kohl’s Cares Field Trip Grant Program was such a success that we are
excited to announce we are doubling our funding this year,” said Michelle
Gass, Kohl’s chief customer officer. “We’re thrilled to provide even more
teachers and students the opportunity to have fun, exciting learning
experiences outside of the classroom.”

The program allows school groups to visit Kohl’s partner organizations
including, Betty Brinn Children’s Museum, Discovery World, Junior Achievement

fully utilized. The Kohl’s grants cover field trip expenses such as admission
fees (including incremental workshops), transportation, substitute teacher
fees and materials required for the experience.
