FUNDER SPOTLIGHT

Mirellise Vazquez, Executive DirectorTauck Family Foundation:

The Tauck Family Foundation investments seek to equip the children of Bridgeport, Connecticut with the necessary social and emotional skills to thrive academically and in life.

We provide multi-year general operating support and targeted capacity building to:

  • a partnership between Yale University and the Bridgeport Public Schools to implement RULER throughout the district;
  • two charter schools (Achievement First Bridgeport Academy and New Beginnings Family Academy); and
  • an out-of-school time program (Horizons at Green Farms Academy).

We also engage in collaborative partnerships, and knowledge building and sharing with national experts such as Child Trends and the Harvard Graduate School of Education; and host convenings to address social and emotional learning-related topics of interest to the Bridgeport community, including trauma and toxic stress, family engagement, and equity.
