You may request funds for items such as lunch, mass transit fare, mementos, etc. when creating your trip project on DonorsChoose.org. You should include the price of these items in your total cost for the trip. If your project is fully funded, the costs for meals, bus or subway tickets, and souvenirs will be handled as reimbursements. We will notify you regarding the purchasing process and you should not purchase any items unless you receive instructions to do so.
