The Bright Horizons Foundation for Children was founded in 1999 to fulfill the mission of Bright Horizons to “make a difference in the lives of children and families.”  Through the Foundation, Bright Horizons supports nonprofit organizations with programs for children and families. The Bright Horizons Foundation for Children extended its ability to make a difference in the lives of children with the successful launch of our Foundation in Europe in August 2005.

At Bright Horizons, we have a wealth of knowledge about children and families. Through the Bright Horizons Foundation for Children, we can extend the reach of our knowledge and commitment far beyond the walls of our centers, schools, and programs for enrolled families to at-risk children and families in the communities where Bright Horizons Family Solutions employees live and work. We do this by supporting programs that instill a positive self-concept and self-esteem in children; provide children and families with nurturing, creative environments; and support and facilitate the development of strong families.

We support a range of programs that serve children and families through volunteers, grants, and resources. Our signature program, Bright Spaces®, play areas that brighten the lives of homeless children and families in crisis, serves thousands of homeless children each month.
