What is the Fifth Chair Foundation?
The Fifth Chair Foundation is an international non-profit (tax-exempt in U.S.) organization dedicated to fostering bridge education on the internet and attracting new players to a game that has challenged, intrigued and entertained people since the early 16th Century when it was known as whist in England.

We live in a wonderful time. The internet provides the opportunity to communicate globally with greater speed and ease than walking to a neighbor's home. Becoming involved with bridge on the 'Net gives a player the chance to routinely play with people around the world.

Many of us involved in online bridge have never met (except on the 'Net), but our common love of bridge has provided us the chance to become acquainted and form lifelong friendships. We hope you will join us.

For folks new to the game, the Foundation will try to give you the information and support that will help you get started off on the right foot.

For the novice and intermediate player, the Foundation will provide information and instructional support to help you improve your game.

Advanced players will find things designed to test their bridge abilities through the Foundation as well. Also, we hope advanced players will volunteer to assist this effort by sharing their bridge skills and knowledge with learners through Foundation programs. Some volunteer positions require bridge knowledge, while others just need a willing volunteer.
