Cornerstone Bank pledges $125,000 to Our Bright Future

Our Bright Future

Cornerstone Bank recently pledged its ongoing support of Our Bright Future, Inc., by donating $25,000 a year through 2028—a total donation of $125,000. The Southbridge-based organization is committed to empowering children and developing future leaders through science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) initiatives.

“We have long been impressed with the people, programs and progress at Our Bright Future,” said Cornerstone Bank CEO Todd Tallman. “Committing our support for five years will make it easier for the organization’s team to plan with confidence. The funds will help the organization maintain and enhance its STEM programs and ultimately extend its reach to more students.”

Last year, Cornerstone’s $25,000 donation was earmarked for two programs within the organization: the STEMing Into Sports Summer Program and the Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) STEM After-School Program. In 2022, Cornerstone’s $25,000 donation supported the purchase of a van to help children and teens get to and from the organization’s summer camp and after-school programs.

Our Bright Future Inc. was established in 2016 to empower youth and develop bright leaders through robotics, 3D printing, sports training and guidance in academics. Through various programs, it incorporates education, empowerment, discipline, leadership, diversity and respect to help students shape the future.
