Bright Futures—Frederick/Winchester is a non-profit organization that helps schools connect student needs with resources that already exist in the community. The Bright Futures framework brings together businesses, human service agencies, faith-based organizations, and parent groups and partners them with schools in a way that helps them quickly and efficiently meet the needs of students and schools.

Bright Futures—Frederick/Winchester’s strategic plan centers on three critical objectives: to increase the amount of time the community provides for the needs of the children, to foster an environment where the community lends its talents, and to collect and apply treasures to address unmet needs.

Donations for Bright Futures Needed - NEW

Bright Futures Collecting Instruments
Do you have a graduating band student with an instrument they no longer need? Instead of hiding it away in the attic, we will be happy to pass it along to a Frederick County student in need. Please contact Nancy Mango at Bright Futures for more information
