Whose idea is this?

In the mid-90s, several visionaries established the Urban Christian Education Fund as a 501 (c) (3) charitable organization. Their vision was to strengthen urban Christian schools for their potential to be salt and light for Jesus Christ and his Kingdom in the civic life of Chicago and beyond.

In the summer of 2009, a director was appointed to lead the organization, and with a steering committee and the support of a private foundation for start-up costs, Bright Promise Fund began.
