Two FADICA members – the Crimsonbridge Foundation (Washington, DC) and The Connelly Foundation (Philadelphia) partnered to bring our Bridges for Schools program to the Archdiocese of Philadelphia. Bridges for Schools provides funding and tools for schools to invest in Spanish and bilingual communications, parent engagement strategies, cultural competency, and more. It is about building belonging and meaningful engagement within a school community.
Since 2015, Crimsonbridge has worked alongside school, diocesan, nonprofit, and foundation partners committed to strengthening Catholic schools and fostering welcoming communities. Through these partnerships, Crimsonbridge incorporated the voices and perspectives of students, parents, teachers, principals, and Catholic school leaders into its program strategy for Bridges to School.
