About us

The Bright Future Trust was founded in 2008 and is the family trust of Dr Chai Patel.

During Bright Future’s first 5 years its main goal was to build a brighter future for children and young people facing challenging circumstances and adversity anywhere.

In addition to making charitable investments via the Bright Future Trust, Dr Chai and Mrs Katharine Patel have also made significant personal donations to a number of other charitable organisations over the years in the form of money and the gifting of personal assets as charitable auction items and intend to continue to do so in the future. These personal donations are included here as part of the Patel family’s overall commitment to charitable investment but do not appear in Bright Future Trust’s Annual Report and Accounts as posted on the Charity Commission’s website
