Hi there. Are you new around here?

Maybe you randomly clicked and page-hopped your way to a Facebook post of ours, saw a cool photo on Instagram, or landed on our website from Google. Hopefully, you were intrigued by what you found. But maybe you want to know a little more, like:

  • Who are we?
  • What do we do?
  • How do we do it?
  • Are we to be trusted?

These are important questions—and conversations we love to have. So, to answer them, we’ve written five blog posts that strive to convey our passion, values and the heart of who we are at Bright Hope.

Feeding programs for children in Bolivia are an example of a Hope for Today program. Find out other ways we help with immediate needs:

Giving Wisely
We also know that being a good steward of the resources you have is important to you, and that you need to trust anyone you share with. We agree, which is why we wrote this next one.

#4 Giving Wisely

Mutual Transformation
We understand that if you invest in a program or an organization, you want to know it’s making a real impact. We get that. But not only that, it’s critical to us that your investment is making an impact in your life too. Here’s how it can…
