ACBLEF Grant Applications

The ACBL Educational Foundation Grants Policy

ACBLEF focuses its grantmaking on helping organizations expand the total number of bridge players through education.

We DO fund program expenses such as facility usage, subsidies for teachers, teaching materials like books, workbooks, flipcharts, and those things directly related to running your educational program. On a case-by-case basis, we will determine whether transportation charges for teachers apply.

We DO NOT fund equipment such as card tables and chairs, machinery like computers, bridgemates, or dealing machines, or refreshments and snacks. It is our belief this last category can be underwritten by a local restaurant or convenience store for your event.

ACBL may be able to help offset the costs of advertising newcomer lessons with its Cooperative Advertising Program, which offers partidal reimbursement to qualifying ads. Please email Stephanie Threlkeld, ACBL Manager of Education and Communication.

Please select the appropriate application form from the following list, complete it in its entirety, and submit to our Grant Administrator.
