2018 Campaign Thank You!

February 19, 2019

Dear Bright Horizons Family,

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your incredible support and generosity during our 2018 Employee Campaign.

This year we broke records! We are so thrilled to share the results with you:

We raised a record-breaking $609,000!

It’s because of your generosity – your individual contributions and the almost 600 FUNdraisers you hosted – that we are able to do the work that we do. Projects like the Bright Space in McAllen, TX, that we opened this year and that we will continue to support through the creation of an outdoor Bright Space and upcoming Brightening Lives Activities across the organization, are all possible because of you.

And there’s more – look at the difference WE made for children and families in crisis in 2018:

  • 20 Bright Spaces and Nooks opened thanks to nearly 18,000 Bright Horizons Employee Volunteer Hours (watch the video here)
  •  230 Bright Horizons ‘Connector’ volunteers supporting nearly 300 Bright Spaces in 41 states serving more 130,000 children
  • More than 5,000 Bright Horizons employees participated in 270 Brightening Lives Activities
  • 45 Gleason Grants were awarded in honor of Bright Horizons employees, celebrating their commitment to giving back in their communities

This is YOUR Foundation – be engaged, be involved, and be counted. The Foundation is celebrating 20 Years of Brightening Lives this year, and with your help we will continue to fulfill our mission of making a difference in the lives of even more children and families.

We look forward to working with you and sharing more about the Foundation’s incredible impact throughout the year!


Thank you again,
