We support a range of programs that serve children and families through volunteers, grants, and resources. Our flagship program, Bright Spaces, serves thousands of homeless children each month. Bright Spaces make a difference one child, one family, one volunteer, one community at a time.

Supported by the Foundation, Driven by Volunteers

From its very start in 1986, community service has been built into the Bright Horizons company DNA. With the help of the Foundation, our employees continue to make good on that promise.

Bright Spaces


More than places for books, toys, and dress-up clothes, Bright Spaces are where children experiencing homelessness and other crises find the room to hope – and heal.

A Passion for Volunteering

Hundreds of annual group projects unite employees in doing good, from assembling bikes, to raising funds, to putting parties in a box for children who otherwise wouldn’t celebrate a birthday. The common thread: employees with the desire to work together to make a difference.

Contributing to a Cause

FUNdraising events – hundreds every year – are just some of the unique and creative ways employees embrace the mission of giving back, and show that the Bright Horizons Foundation is their Foundation.
