How to Give to the Foundation

Bright Horizons employees, clients, families, and friends can support the Bright Horizons Foundation for Children. When you make a contribution, you help bring comfort to children in crisis. Your gift, no matter what size, can open a world of possibilities to children whose lives are tough, challenging, and often very frightening. Together, we can brighten their lives.
