Bright Ideas grants are awarded competitively and reviewed by a community volunteer grant committee which includes two high school students. The program will celebrate its two-year anniversary during the month of September.

“One of our board members asked me the other day how many grants this program has awarded in its first two years, and I was surprised when I added up the 72 grants that have already been given to the 49 different nonprofits," said Kelly Genners, director of community leadership and grant-making for the Foundation. “The best thing about that is each of those 49 organizations touches the residents of our community in a unique and profound way.”

The Bright Ideas program provided its first grant in September 2011. Since that time, over $888,000 in grants have been awarded.
