About the ACBL Educational Foundation
The ACBL Educational Foundation was created in 1987 as an independent offshoot of the American Contract Bridge League, an organization with approximately 165,000 members, that oversees competitive bridge in North America. The Foundation’s mission is to get more and more people playing bridge, not only by growing the number of competitive bridge players, but by introducing the game and enriching the lives of people of all ages and from all walks of life. Millions of people around the world are bridge players, and the Foundation hopes to grow the passion for bridge in communities and households all across North America. The Foundation receives contributions from individuals, families and corporations, and awards grants for programs to carry out its mission.
