Bulldogs Care Foundation is a registered 501(c)(3) granting organization that was founded in memory of four Yale University Bulldogs and seeks to support disadvantaged youth as they pursue personal development through programs in athletics, education and mentoring. Statistics show that during the summer, disadvantaged youth fall further behind academically than their more advantaged peers—due, in part, to a lack of enriching opportunities. Positive academic and athletic experiences, such as the Summer Academy, create the types of development opportunities these children are missing. Through sports, children can also assume leadership roles, learn to handle conflict and manage their time, bond with new friends and improve relationships with adults. For all these reasons and more, BCF is committed to creating these opportunities for local youth in the New York City area.
On January 17, 2003, the Yale University community was devastated by the deaths of four of its finest young men, Kyle Burnat, Andrew Dwyer, Sean Fenton and Nick Grass, as a result of a car accident on a dark and icy northeast winter night. These students were not just anyone to us; they were our best friends, teammates and fraternity brothers.
We founded the Bulldogs Care Foundation (BCF) to support young men and women as they pursue personal development through programs in athletics, education, and mentoring. In all that we do, the Foundation seeks to embody the passion, spirit, and sense of community and friendship of four Yale University Bulldogs - Kyle, Andrew, Nick and Sean who lost their lives one terrible night.
Bulldogs Care Foundation is proud to announce that it has raised over $1,000,000 since it's inception. The funds raised were key in supporting summer programs for foundations such as Harlem RBI, The Peter Westbrook Foundation, Street Squash, Figure Skating in Harlem and New Heights; all of which focus on mentoring disadvantaged youth. Funds raised by the foundation have also supported Student-Athlete programs throughout New York City area, including a Summer Academy in Riverdale for 55 boys and girls in seventh and eighth grades, as well as a Yale scholarship fund.
