Our Mission Bright Lights is a non-profit organization that takes learning beyond the classroom by providing youth with unique, motivating, hands-on learning opportunities.

BackgroundThe financial support has grown to a broad base of support. Funding sources are tuition based, with assistance from foundations, businesses, community service groups, families, and individuals. In early years, four foundations supported the tuition income. In comparison, now:

  • 21 foundations ($20,000 to $250 each)

  • 78 businesses ($1,500 to $75 each)

  • a dozen families with generous donations ($2,000 to $100 each)

  • three dozen families made smaller contributions ($150 to $5 each)
