Dozens of Building Bridges Scholars and Alumni are enrolled in or have graduated from four-year colleges/universities, including*:

100% of donated funds go to current and future recipients of Building Bridges scholarships. The program affords donors the unique opportunity to see exactly how their charitable donations are being spent.

Building Bridges is proud and grateful to be working in partnership with Notre Dame Preparatory School which has generously pledged to match tuition funding for our scholarship recipients, thereby reducing costs and opening their doors for more students to benefit from our mission.
