Brightside Foundation works hand-in-hand with Brightside, Inc. to solicit and oversee privately-raised funds in support of the environmentally focused activities of Brightside Inc. Through its fiduciary oversight role, the Foundation ensures that donated funds are used as the donor intended.


Brightside Foundation and Brightside, Inc. function together as a public/private partnership, merging the resources of Metro Government and those of private citizens, corporations and foundations. This unique public/private partnership contributes to the health and beauty of our community throughout Louisville/Jefferson County, Kentucky through activities including community-wide cleanups to reduce waste and litter and encourage recycling; the creation and maintenance of green spaces and plantings; sustainability efforts to conserve and expand the tree canopy; educational programs that instill values of clean, green and sustainability among our youngest citizens; and high-profile events that raise public awareness and help support Brightside's mission.


Brightside, Inc. is dedicated to uniting people in clean and green activities that beautify and foster pride in our community through volunteerism, planting, sustainability, & education.

Brightside promotes sustainability through long-standing education programs that spread our mission to future generations and prepare for a brighter tomorrow, while our green living program advocates and educates about everyday sustainable living practices. Our BrightSites and planting projects strengthen and support our native eco-system and tree canopy, while encouraging community involvement, pride in place, and economic development.

Because our programs are run entirely on privately donated dollars, any donation to the Brightside Foundation is an investment in our community!
