Event description
Brighten Academy is bridging the achievement gap for students in Douglas County; we're asking you to help us bridge our funding gap too!

About this event

Brighten Academy Charter School (BACS) serves 830+ students in grades K - 8 in Douglas County, GA. As a non-profit public charter school, Brighten operates with a $1500/per student annual funding gap-- that's $1.2 million less for our students, and we're actually required to do more. This is not the case with a traditional public school.

Despite this gap, Brighten students continue to perform at a high level and many consistently outperform their peers. Our school has been able to grow and support the only middle school girls' volleyball team and the only full-scale middle school drama program in the Douglas County school system.

Brighten Academy is strong and our leadership is solid, but every organization can use some help if it intends to stay strong. Won't you be the bridge that helps close our funding gap?

Funds from this online giving event go to our Capital Campaign which enables us to purchase additional academic resources for our students, afford athletic and art program enhancements, and provide for facility updates -- like resurfacing our parking lot.

We are respectfully asking for your very generous donation as you support our first ever #Giving Tuesday event. Please share the love: ask your family, friends, and neighbors if they'd like to share some kindness and just get to know about all the amazing things Brighten is doing for kids in Douglas County!

We are grateful and thankful for each and every one of you!!

We'll be accepting your donations starting at 12:00 PM EST on Friday, November 19th through 11:59 PM EST on November 30th. No need to wait, #givenow.

*Brighten Academy Charter School is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization

Organizer Brighten Academy - Georgia Charter School of the Year 2014

Organizer of Brighten Academy's First Annual Giving Tuesday

Brighten Academy's mission is "to provide a productive learning environment with a highly qualified staff committed to using an innovative, research based instructional model that produces measured growth in every student every year." We achieve this through an Expeditionary Learning approach that focuses on the whole child and goes beyond academics. Brighten utilizes the 7 - C's: Craftsmanship, Curiosity, Community, Creativity, Critical Thinking, Culture, and Commitment. This learning approach leads our students to do more than they think possible so they can contribute to building a better world.
