Bright Futures Changes Lives!

The PCEF Bright Futures program walks alongside Park City's first-generation students as they prepare for, succeed in, and graduate college. We make a long-term commitment to our students, providing a college-readiness curriculum, individualized coaching, peer support and financial assistance from 10th grade through college graduation - a minimum of seven years.

Big Growth, Exponential Impact 

Bright Futures currently supports 145 Park City students, 60 of whom are in college. And, eight students in the inaugural class graduated in the spring of 2023! Nationally, only 11% of first-generation students battling income barriers graduate with a bachelor's degree by age 24.

To date, Bright Futures college students have achieved a 90% progression rate!

Give to Those Destined to Give Back 

PCEF Bright Futures is funded entirely through donor support. This includes the costs of running the program as well as scholarships and need-based financial support for students. Your generosity is impacting students and their families for generations to come.

Thank you for helping our students pursue their college dreams!
