Foundations in Education is a non-profit initiative created to assist the Diocese of Bridgeport’s ongoing mission to support Catholic education in Fairfield County. The primary purpose of Foundations is to raise money to support Catholic education through student scholarships, innovation and leadership grants for the professional development of elementary school teachers, and other education-based initiatives. Our goal is to provide students with the necessary resources and support to enable their success, growth, and character development in elementary schools, thereby providing the foundations for their success in high school, higher education, and life.

Through its work, Foundations will help Catholic schools in Fairfield County remain at the cutting edge of academics, to excel in leadership development, provide financial aid to needy families, and create a best-in-class school system within our Diocese. Ultimately, we aim to transform lives through a strong educational foundation.
