The Cambridge "Bright Stars" Foundation Program

At Cambridge Educational Services, our mission inspires us to partner with educators who share the significant mission of educational advancement for all students.

Our founder, David Waldherr, and his wife Kathy, a high school math teacher, created the Cambridge "Bright Stars" Foundation Program. As our non-profit affiliate organization, the foundation assists hundreds of schools and thousands of students.  More than $1.8 million in matching grants have been allocated to supply college and career preparation materials to help deserving, disadvantaged students.

Our foundation program has funded:

  • College and career readiness programs in high schools where the majority of students are low-income or first generation college bound.
  • Non-profit organizations and community agencies that work with homeless mothers and children to promote educational advancement and work force readiness.
  • Resources and materials for TRIO and GEAR-UP programs that serve first-generation college and graduate students.


The Cambridge "Bright Stars" Foundation Program is proud to offer the Partners in Success Foundation Award to qualified partner schools.  This program is designed to assist minority and low-income students and schools who serve them by providing financial grants toward the purchase of quality college and career preparation materials.  Download an application or contact us for more information.
