How it Works
Individual Grants for Students, Young People and Families in Recovery:
Grant recipient selection is based on a strong commitment to both sobriety (as demonstrated by active work in a 12 step program or other recovery modality) and academic studies or school work. The Bridge Foundation awards grants on an objective and non-discriminatory basis. The Bridge Foundation’s grant procedure provides for proper follow-up by the Foundation to determine whether grantees have performed the activities that the grants are intended to finance and have not diverted grant funds away from the original purposes of the grant. Grant recipients must adhere to all requirements, including Periodic progress reports must be made to the Foundation, at least once a year, to determine whether grantees have performed the activities the grants are intended to finance.
A Safe Haven Grant is to be used for supportive housing and/or Recovery services while studying at a Recovery High School or an institution of higher education, and a recipient may use grant funds for room, board, supportive services, and travel that specifically supports Recovery. The grant’s purpose is to achieve a specific objective, to support Students’ Recovery, and improve or enhance the supportive sober lifestyle of the grantee. A grant restriction agreement is entered into with Grant recipients pursuant to which the recipient agrees to use the funds in furtherance of the public charity’s exempt purposes.
The Bridge Foundation is a nonprofit organization providing financial assistance to young people and families in Recovery.
