Teaching children to be caring and selfless

Every Lightbridge Academy center is actively involved in fundraising efforts. Both our team members and the children volunteer to participate in a variety of events that benefit a group or a cause. 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 the value of doing something nice to help someone in need.

More than $700,000 donated to children and families

Since the inception of the Lightbridge Foundation, we’ve been able to provide those within our Circle of Care with valuable gifts and contributions, such as:

  • $500 scholarships earmarked for high school seniors who desire to pursue a college education. It is our hope that they will continue to “pay it forward” by serving as an inspiration and be a future leader in education.
  • Direct grants to assist parents and families with expenses for a wide range of challenges including treatment of pediatric illnesses, assistance with recovering after a natural disaster and necessary therapy.
  • Donations to local charities such as Hometown Heroes, Fighting Children’s Cancer Foundation, The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia Foundation, Wounded Warrior Project, Spread the Joy, local food banks, homeless shelters and many other important causes.
  • Volunteering at special projects in our communities.
