Bright Funds enables donors to invest in "mutual funds" of the world's high-impact nonprofits through an online technology platform that integrates seamlessly into social media and employee benefit systems. The platform makes it easier for prospective donors to access a pre-vetted set of high-performing, responsible nonprofits. Donations flow through to BELL based on the amount donors invest through Bright Funds, and the allocation of their donation across issue areas and organizations in the education fund.

"BELL is certainly honored to be a part of the education fund at Bright Funds," explains Tiffany Gueye, Ph.D., BELL's CEO. "There is tremendous potential in the organization's holistic and diverse approach. It changes the giving equation.
