AFP: The Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) Fairfield County and Connecticut Chapters are honored to recognize the Tauck Family of Wilton as their Outstanding Philanthropist for 2019, at the National Philanthropy Day Annual Awards and Conference. This award recognizes an individual or family with a proven record of exceptional generosity who, through direct financial support demonstrates outstanding civic and charitable responsibility and whose generosity encourages others to take philanthropic leadership roles on a community, national or international level.
The Tauck Family Foundation is a private, multi-generational family foundation that invests long-term in organizations and initiatives that equip the children of Bridgeport, Connecticut with the necessary social and emotional skills to thrive academically and in life.
Their support has been provided not only in the form of generous funding, but also targeted capacity building, collaborative partnerships, and knowledge building and sharing. The Foundation partners deeply, transparently, and with humility and an equity-mindset to support investees in achieving their organizational and stakeholder outcomes.
Current investees include Bridgeport Early Childhood SEL Initiative, Bridgeport Public Schools SEL Initiative, Catholic Academy of Bridgeport, Horizons Bridgeport, and New Beginnings Family Academy. Together, our investees have the potential to reach more than 26,000 Bridgeport children.
