Bright Futures

Bright Futures is a program at Ingraham that launched at the 2016-17 Friends of Ingraham Annual Auction, with the goal of providing resources that would allow the IHS Counseling team to more comprehensively support our students who are experiencing poverty or housing insecurity. Bright Futures sole purpose is to provide a high school experience for all students by funding basic needs such as food, clothing, toiletries and shoes; academic needs such as backpacks, notebooks, calculators and pencils; and experiential needs such as club activity fees, school dances and athletic uniforms. 

Bright Futures seniors are ensured they receive a graduation cap & gown, a yearbook and can attend their prom and Spree (drug & alcohol free all-night graduation party) party. Bright Futures IS making a measurable difference supporting over 200 kids in the past 18 months alone.

A portion of the initial funds were used to set up our Pride Closet, a place where students can access basic items necessary for success, such as school supplies, clothes, food, hygiene products, and more. Over the years, we have been able to provide backpacks filled with academic supplies, warm coats, hats, gloves, and socks during the wet Seattle winters, ensure that all students have access to healthy snacks during the school day, send meal baskets home to families during breaks, and so much more.

If you would like to help keep our Pride Closet stocked, there are a number of ways to contribute! We accept donations of snacks, toiletries, and gently used clothing year-round in the counseling office. Alternately, you can order through our Amazon wishlist  and choose Ingraham High School as the delivery location, or purchase items at your favorite local store and either drop them off in the counseling office or have them sent to:

Our expectation is that graduation is within the reach of every student who attends Ingraham and that Ingraham students are well prepared for life after high school. Thank you for your continued support and generosity, you are making a direct impact in the lives of our Ingraham students!
