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 years, the BASE Foundation has awarded well over $20,000 in grants and sponsored many seminars and programs 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.
Although independent of the Brighton Area Schools system, the BASE Foundation awards educational grants to teachers and service organizations to benefit the Brighton community. 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 35 years.
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.
