The Bright Futures Foundation started around a dinner table in Greensboro, NC in 2012. The beginning of a high school senior project that turned into a passion to serve the world's youth. Three siblings that wanted to help kids achieve their dreams, no matter their circumstances or lack of resources, founded this charity committed to young people nationally and internationally. We take our convictions and turn them into action with the hope of inspiring those we meet to find the courage and determination to be their best self.
Our team is made up of volunteers both young and old. We all passionately believe the more opportunity and support one is exposed to early in life the better their chances are to lead a happy self-reliant adulthood. The stories of triumph over adversity we have heard from so many beckoned us to join in on something to benefit our community. Our donors are a critical part of this team and crucial to our success. We insure that 100% of all donations go directly to planned projects. Business expenses from travel to postage are paid through the co-founders personal finances allowing every dollar donated to go directly to the kids we serve.

Through increased access to educational success and healthy life experiences we strive to encourage confidence, empowerment, and hope to children and youth that are facing difficult circumstances in life. It is our goal to have a real world connection to young people who encounter adversity everyday. We want to help provide equal opportunities which might help in a small way to level the playing field for successful futures. To achieve the greatest impact our goal is to maximize donations by diversifying funds and volunteer time between multiple charities.
The Bright Futures Foundation has raised funding, donated supplies, and provided volunteer work for nonprofits including:
Oxford Home for Children (Oxford,NC),
Yachay Wasi School (Peru),
St. Jude's Children's Hospital
Vs Cancer|Pediatric Brain Tumor Research and Give a Kid a Coat Campaign
We pledge to continue our support to these organization and others by listening first, asking how we can help, and then pursuing that goal with
passion, empathy, and dignity to all involved.
We are currently working to raise $5,000 in order to support the online education of both the Children's Home in Oxford, NC and Yachi Wasi School in Ollantaytambo, Peru. Your support and contributions will enable us to provide laptops or tablets for the students as well as provide internet access where needed. These funds will provide the necessary technology for students during the pandemic and even after COVID 19 is no longer attacking our world. High schoolers can use them for classwork, ACT/SAT study, and college applications. Younger students will be able to increase their educational and technological skills as well. We appreciate you so very much as we strive to provide this important educational tool.
