District 16 is one of five districts that has been chosen to receive the “Charity of the Year” grants for 2014.

Beginning in 2005, the ACBL Charity Foundation began issuing grants--these grants are now referred to as Charities of the Year.

If you have a charity that you would like to be considered for a grant, please submit your request—the organization must be a designated 501 (c) 3 organization.  Please include any information that may be helpful in understanding why the organization should be considered and in need of receiving the grant. Also, include the name, address and contact person/information of the organization.

Please note that grants will not be awarded to any organization related to bridge. There are two other foundations that award grants specifically to the bridge community:  Educational Foundation and Foundation for the Preservation and Advancement of Bridge.

Request for grants must be received by July 1, 2014.   Please submit your request to:

Nancy Strohmer
District 16 Charity Committee Chair
114 Broad Oaks Court, Houston, TX 77056
