Tauck Family Foundation invests in organizations and initiatives that equip the children of Bridgeport, Connecticut with the necessary social and emotional skills to thrive academically and in life.

Portfolio

In 2018, the Tauck Family Foundation selected its second portfolio of non-profit Investees.

We are thrilled to begin or continue our multi-year partnership with each of our five Investees who seek to foster social and emotional skills in the Bridgeport children and families they serve so that their students can thrive academically and in life.

Over the next 3 to 5 years, the Foundation will provide targeted capacity-building support and/or general operating support to each Investee. The Foundation will also provide opportunities for Investees to learn from and share best practices with each other as well as other organizations doing similar work. The Foundation will partner deeply, transparently, and with humility and an equity-mindset to support our Investees in achieving their organizational and stakeholder outcomes.

Together, our Investees have the potential to reach more than 26,000 Bridgeport children.
