T he Foundation is pleased to host the 2021 Bright Futures Benefit WEEK, an inspirational week of impactful student videos to raise critical funds to support our students during this challenging time. Now more than ever, your contributions are critical to ensuring the success of our students. Our students are re-affirming their commitment to their education, but they cannot do it without you and your support. Every dollar you give will benefit a LWTech student and will help them with the financial and motivational resources they need to succeed.

Mark your calendars! Videos will be released every day at noon. Be the first to watch our amazing students and incredible donors tell their stories
