The BASE Foundation advocates for and supports both youth asset development and parenting skill building by funding vital programs and projects that benefit youth and/or parents in our Brighton Community.
These programs are critical to the development of youth and parents in our community. Over the last few years. the BASE Foundation has awarded over $20,000 in grants and scholarships for these purposes.
The BASE Foundation stands for Brighton Area Schools Education Foundation, and also symbolizes Building, Advocating, Supporting and Encouraging effective asset building in our community's youth.
Established in 1985 as a tax-exempt, charitable organization, BASE is funded through individual and business contributions and is managed by a Board of Trustees who serve without pay. One of the most important responsibilities we share as a community is to raise and nurture kind, giving, compassionate educated and responsible youth. This has been the goal of the the BASE Foundation for over 20 years. Although independent of the Brighton Area Schools System, the BASE Foundation awards educational grants to teachers and service organizations that benefit the Brighton Community.
The BASE Foundation has adopted The Developmental Assets® created by the Search Institute as its guide in determining grant eligibility. These Developmental Assets® have become the most widely used approach to positive youth development in the United States.
If you have or know a Brighton student they have most likely been exposed to a program funded by The BASE Foundation. We estimate that we have touched the lives of over 2,000 Brighton Community Youth and Parents over the last three years.

BASE Foundation Grants are awarded to area groups, organizations, who are looking for funds to begin a new program or to help assist in providing a program which will benefit the Brighton, community. We ask that the program meet some of The 40 Developmental Assets® established by the Parent Institute. A copy of these assets can be found under our resources tab. We ask that your application be submitted at least three months prior to your event. Grant monies will not be awarded for events which have already occurred.. BASE grants are meant to serve as a one time grant to help assist with a program start up or to help assist in a one time event which would benefit our community. If you have any questions about our grant process, or for the application please email:: info@Base-Foundation.com
