Peoria Riverfront Museum's Every Student Initiative

The Every Student Initiative (ESI) vision is to engage every student from every public, private and homeschool organization in Central Illinois with a curricula-inspired visit to the Peoria Riverfront Museum every year. Since its inception in 2017, ESI has provided more than 50,000 museum experiences at no cost to students. ESI was launched with a grant from the Barton Family Foundation and has received support from Mary Jean Bowman, the Art Bridges Foundation, John Graham & Associates, with additional support from the museum’s Corporate Visionary Society Council members, the annual Holiday Luncheon, and hundreds of individual donors.
