About The Brick Project

At CFES Brilliant Pathways, we believe every student deserves a chance to forge their own route to a bright future – no matter where they’re from.  For 28 years, we’ve worked side-by-side with schools, colleges and businesses to help more than 100,000 students move down the pathway to college and career. Now we’re building a brick pathway at our national headquarters in Essex, NY that you can be part of by buying a brick.

Bricks on the CFES Center pathway are a way to honor a loved one, to pay tribute to a favorite mentor, or celebrate a family member’s accomplishment!

Choose Your Brick

Choose from two brick sizes to inscribe with a phrase and your name or the name of someone you would like to honor:

$300 for a standard 4” x 8” brick (3 lines of text, up to 18 characters per line)
$500 for a 8” x 8” brick (6 lines of text, up to 18 characters per line)

The Impact of Your Brick

Every dollar raised by the brick project will support CFES students in high-need communities. Your brick will provide college visits for students, school incentive stipends, mentor training workshops, financial aid seminars, special opportunities like STEM robotics workshops and other college and career readiness activities.

Our plan is to sell 1,000 bricks, so that together we can help change the life trajectories of 1,500 students.

Come See Your Brick

Bricks purchased in the first phase of the project will be installed in June 2020. Whether you live in the Essex area or you will be traveling here, we invite you to stop by CFES headquarters to see your brick in person. Your brick purchase will show your commitment to the CFES mission of helping students become college and career ready.
