Philanthropy has been a cornerstone of The Bright School since its founding in 1913. The Bright Fund is our school's annual giving program that enables us to support our most valuable assets - our students and teachers. At Bright School there is no purpose more important than giving children the skills, the values, the courage, and the wisdom to move ahead with success.

In fulfilling its mission, the Bright School relies on voluntary support from alumni, parents, and friends. Charitable gifts to Bright School help maintain the excellent faculty, small classes, and strong academic programs that have given generations of Chattanooga children outstanding educational experiences.
