Brighter Futures Society

The Brighter Futures Society (BFS) is an exclusive group of multi-year supporters who truly understand the life-changing benefits of high quality early education.  BFS members change the lives of our children by ensuring that, regardless of resources, each child gets the education they need to be on par with their peers in kindergarten. BFS members are the fabric of CFNC and are the reason we have served the Alexandria community for almost 40 years. 

They have invested, not donated, funds because they truly understand that every dollar that goes towards high quality education pays off in a myriad of ways.

With the help of BFS, CFNC has empowered over 4,000 families, and work every day to achieve the following goals: (1) ensure under-resourced children are prepared with the social, emotional, physical, language, and intellectual skills needed to succeed in an English-speaking kindergarten setting; (2) establish meaningful partnerships with families to grow school readiness and optimal development; (3) empower parents and caregivers with tools and resources to advocate for and support their child’s educational success long-term; and (4) ultimately see that the three- and four-year-old children we serve today have access to the tools they need to thrive, and thus graduate from high school and become successful, self-sufficient adults who positively contribute to their communities.
