History & Relationships

History and Relationships

In 1990, the Brighter Tomorrow Foundation was formed as a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization in response to interest from private citizens who wished to support initiatives for individuals with developmental disabilities through a charitable non-profit organization.

Relationships with Other Organizations

BTF and The Dayton Foundation: Partners with Pride

In October 2008, the Brighter Tomorrow Foundation completed its plans to partner as a supporting organization of The Dayton Foundation. This union brings many benefits to the Brighter Tomorrow Foundation and creates efficiencies to serve people with developmental disabilities. In 2011, the Brighter Tomorrow Foundation became a Committee Advised Fund of the Dayton Foundation.

The relationship allows the foundation’s board to focus on service to its target population, while depending on The Dayton Foundation for back office work. The Dayton Foundation, founded in 1921, has a long history of respect in managing funds such as those of The Brighter Tomorrow Foundation.  The Dayton Foundation provides for investment management of BTF assets as well as accounting, tax and audit services.

Montgomery County Board of
Developmental Disabilities

The Brighter Tomorrow Foundation has direct ties to the Montgomery County Board of Developmental Disabilities Services which has the responsibility for recommending the foundation’s board members to the Dayton Foundation. These members include the Superintendent and other staff from Montgomery County Board of Developmental Disabilities Services along with non-affiliated community members interested in the foundation’s mission.
