Bradley, Katherine

President, CityBridge Foundation


Katherine Bradley is the president of CityBridge Foundation, a nonprofit enterprise located in Washington, D.C. Mrs. Bradley co-founded CityBridge in 1994 with her husband, entrepreneur and magazine publisher David G. Bradley.

The Foundation works to build a citywide system of high-performing schools in Washington, D.C. CityBridge finds, incubates, and invests in the most promising practices in public education, looking to assemble, in the District, the critical mass of transformative schools—traditional public and charter—needed for the success of all children. CityBridge’s signature projects include the Early Years Education Initiative (2006-2011), Breakthrough Schools (launched in 2010), and the Education Innovation Fellowship (launched in 2013).

Mrs. Bradley serves as a board member for the KIPP Foundation and STAND for Children and chairs the Washington regional board for Teach For America. In the winter of 2010-2011, Mrs. Bradley co-chaired Mayor Vincent C. Gray’s education transition team.
