Welcome to the ACBL Educational Foundation

The ACBL Educational Foundation is a nonprofit organization established in 1987 for the purpose of getting more people of all ages and walks of life to play and enjoy bridge. The Foundation primarily does this by awarding grants for bridge educational programs, and it is supported by contributions from individuals, families, and corporations.

The Foundation is embarking on a dramatic increase in the scope and scale of its efforts. Our first step is to hire a talented Executive Director who can help us raise substantially more money and develop new strategies for dramatically increasing the number of people, in all age groups, who play and enjoy bridge. We are excited to announce that we have now done that (see below).


Our New Executive Director, Kristen Frederick!
