The Bridging the Gap Gala addresses the learning loss students are experiencing as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and how it has worsened the already existing education gap within the community.

‘We are excited to be able to announce to our community our renewed focus on providing educational opportunities to the children of Camden. It will be great to see our supporters again, in a safe and responsible environment, while having some very important conversations around learning loss in the post-COVID environment. Now more than ever the children of Camden need our help in bridging the learning gap and we believe getting our supporters back together is a great first step,’ explains the executive director, Brian Riggs.

The Bridging the Gap Gala will be held on Saturday, September 18th at Franklin’s View by Cescaphe in Philadelphia.

We at Kennedy firmly believe future opportunities can and will abound for Camden’s youth in strong partnership with The Joseph Fund’s emphasis on educational assistance, literacy and encouragement of learning’.


Since 2012, The Joseph Fund of Camden has been committed to improving the lives of Camden’s residents and the community.
