GIVING BACK

FOUNDATION

Established in 2001, the Lightbridge Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization supporting parents and children along life's journey. Its work is central to the core beliefs of all Lightbridge Family members. To us, committing to meeting the needs of all parents and children is a natural extension of our Circle of Care philosophy, which inspires everything we do as a company. We realize that the well-being of our educators, parents, children and even the people we do business with contribute to the strength of our communities, enriching our lives in countless ways. Instead of focusing on a single cause, our foundation provides a wide range of services to people within our Circle of Care


MORE THAN $250,000 GIVEN TO CHILDREN & FAMILIES IN NEED! 

  • $1,000 scholarships earmarked for high school seniors who desire to continue their studies in the area of early childhood education. It is our hope that they will continue to "pay it forward" by serving as an inspiration and future leader in education.
  • Direct grants to assist parents in covering expenses for a wide range of challenges including treatment of pediatric illnesses, necessary therapy and assistance recovering after natural disasters. 
  • Local charities such as Hometown Heroes, Fighting Children's Cancer Foundation, The children's Hospital of Philadelphia Foundation, Wounded Warrior Project, local food banks, homeless shelters and many other important causes.
  • Serving as volunteers for special projects in the community such as Tooling Around the Township program in Woodbridge, NJ. 


Lightbridge Academy is committed to supporting and adding value to the communities our child care centers serve throughout New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Maryland.





HOW WE DO IT

Every Lightbridge Academy center is actively involved in fundraising efforts by participating in a variety of events. Staff enjoy donating and the children learn the fundamental importance of giving back. Whether bringing canned goods to support the local food pantry, making snacks to sell at the bake sale or rolling up their sleeves at the Parent Car Wash, children learn a happy heart is a giving one!
