Bright Funds has helped us easily define the kind of company we wanted to be from the outset and now conveys the company we have become. We have Bright Funds featured on our site because it highlights what we value as founders, what our employees value, and what the company values.

Andrew Flachner
CEO at RealScout

"Bright Funds allows us to facilitate employee giving and volunteer in one simple platform - and it allows us to easily track and measure the success of our community engagement efforts. Our employees love it because it is user-friendly. Brights Funds allows my team to focus on the work, rather than managing issues associated with online giving and volunteering."

Rita Nini

One of our core values at DO is “our community is bigger than just us.” The partnership with Bright Funds allows us to live that value by helping our employees support a charitable organization in a community that has personal meaning to them. It’s a powerful statement about what we care about as a company, and an important reason that so many talented people choose to join DO.
