The Bright Ideas education grant program started at Brunswick Electric in 1994 when an employee recognized a need for additional funding in the classroom after she saw a teacher purchasing school supplies.
Soon after, the grant program was adopted by 26 electric cooperatives across the state of North Carolina. Since inception, Bright Ideas has funded 11,000 innovative, classroom-based projects across the state and touched the lives of more than 2.2 million students.
