Support youth bridge!

The ACBL Educational Foundation (ACBLEF) is an independent 501 (c)(3) nonprofit foundation with the mission of introducing bridge to non-players and growing bridge players of all levels. The Foundation accepts contributions from individuals and corporations and then awards grants to programs which share its goals.

The ACBLEF junior fund raises donations earmarked to support US junior bridge. Our first goal is to help qualified US juniors attend major tournaments such as the upcoming World Youth Transnational Championships in Salsomaggiore Terme, Italy occurring August 7-14, 2022.
