Bright Values: Give Back
What Giving Back Means to the Foundation
Giving back was important to our founders, the late Lois and Dale Bright, and they gave to a variety of causes over the years. Today, the Bright Foundation funds college scholarships with the goal that recipients will graduate on-time, debt-free, prepared to launch their careers and give back in some way.
Scholarship recipients give back in a variety of ways throughout their college experiences, sometimes directly to us, to other scholars, and to the larger community. By sharing their experiences with us, we learn from them and are able to take their input into account for program improvement and refinement to best meet their needs. By connecting with each other, scholars learn from each other’s experiences and discover new resources and opportunities. By sharing their time and talents within the community, they give back through avenues important to them and in turn make the world a better place.
