Tokyu Foundation Supports Imiloa's Adopt-A-Visit

UH Hilo’s ‘Imiloa Astronomy Center of Hawai‘i received an $8,000 donation from the Tokyu Foundation in support of the Adopt-A-Visit Field Trip Program at ‘Imiloa.  The gift will fund field trip costs to the Center for Hawai‘i Island students.

At a time when local schools face challenges securing funding to augment the science and math education taught in their classrooms, the Adopt-A-Visit program makes it possible for these lessons to come alive for Big Island students.  The program subsidizes visits by local classes to ‘Imiloa, underwriting admission and transportation for the keiki.
