  • 3. Donate directly to Brightlane.

    Brightlane’s programs are made possible by community support. Academic intervention, volunteer training, and education-based case management all demand a great deal of resources. Donations are critical all year round, but they’re especially important as we prepare to enroll and serve hundreds of students in the upcoming school year. Help us put more children on the path to a brighter future:
    Donate now.

By joining the call to Step Bright Up, you’ll put students impacted by homelessness and housing insecurity on the path to a brighter future.

The number of school-aged children experiencing housing insecurity and homelessness in Indianapolis is at an all-time high. That’s why Brightlane Learning is calling on you to Step Bright Up. This is your chance to help students in need get the life-changing education they deserve.
