Make a Donation

For first-generation students, it’s an honor and a privilege to have the opportunity to attend college, but along with this invaluable opportunity will be challenges to overcome. It’s critical that students know they are supported by their families, communities and schools as they work to meet all the financial obligations of attending college, while also maintaining their studies and assimilating into social networks. Please consider donating to Brighter Horizon to help ensure their success. Every donation, large or small, allows us to provide more deserving students with the opportunity to achieve their goals.
