Bright Futures Helps Students in Need Receive a Catholic Education
Bright Futures Fund is an independent 501(c)3 corporation, with 100 percent of donations going directly to students. Every child is able to attend Catholic school without financial barrier.
All administrative costs are underwritten by the Diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph. For over 30 years, Bright Futures has provided need-based assistance for low-income children in the Kansas City, Missouri urban core. This fund fully supports the operating costs for our two Bright Futures Schools, Holy Cross and Our Lady of Hope. It also subsidizes tuition for nearly 100% of their students.
"School should be a place to develop the whole child -- mind, body,
and spirit -- where one grows learning how to live."
-- Pope Francis
The loving and generous support of our donors has allowed Bright Futures to provide over 30,000 scholarships, help over 15,000 families, and invest over 76 million dollars in the future of our faith and our children. The Bright Futures Fund strives to challenge and encourage students in Kansas City to discover their full potential while developing a personal relationship with Christ.
