Become A Donor

ArtsBusXpress is the only organization in San Diego County that provides funding to send any TK-12th grade public or charter school student on a field trip. But our work would simply not be possible without your support.

Field trips, whether they be on-site at a museum or aquarium, virtual, or an outreach opportunity delivered at a school, provide students with a vast array of informal learning experiences that enrich and extend understanding. These opportunities expose students to new experiences, peak interest in the arts and sciences, and connect students to the cultural institutions within their communities.

Since our inception in 2002, ABX has sent nearly 200,000 students in San Diego County on field trips. This school year, our goal is to send 10,000 more! No matter how you choose to give, know that your contribution is critical to our ongoing success and helping to provide an experience that, in many cases, would not exist without your support. For more information, please don’t hesitate to email or call us!

As a donor, you have the flexibility to donate in multiple ways that meet your specific passion to support our San Diego County students. Regardless of your donation amount, you can designate your donation in any given year to the following:


  1. General fund (used by ABX staff as needed)

  2. A school/teacher

  3. A school/grade level

  4. A school

  5. A district

  6. A venue or program


All donations are designated for the fiscal year they are made unless there are extenuating circumstances in which case the funds will be reserved for the following school year.

Over the years, we have been very fortunate to enjoy the support of many corporations large and small, foundations, and individuals that share the value of field trips to the arts and sciences that create life-changing experiences and valuable learning opportunities for nearly 200,000 students since the ABX inception in 2002. We are ever so grateful.

Questions? Contact us at or 858-367-0813. ABX is a tax exempt 501(c)3 organization (Federal Tax ID 20-2793281). Contributions to ABX are tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law.
