Gifts With Promise
Since 1967, Sunshine Village has been sustained, supported and strengthened by the generosity and investment of our community. Thanks to the private funding we receive through special events and memorial contributions, along with gifts from families, businesses, civic groups, and friends, we’re able to go above and beyond our contracted amounts. These partnerships mean we can develop incredible, innovative programs that enhance the lives of the people we serve and truly help them SHINE.
Your donation is highly valued and used wisely. 89% of every fundraising dollar goes toward our ongoing mission of creating great days at Sunshine Village. These gifts with promise enable us to purchase adaptive equipment, upgrade technology, improve buildings and furnishings, buy innovative program materials, host celebrations, to make Sunshine Village a place where everyone’s dreams come true.
Additionally, Sunshine Village is able to use donations to provide services for people who would otherwise receive no funding. Without this assistance, they would be forced to stay at home. As an organization, we’re grateful for the continued gifts that enable us to grow, adapt and expand our facilities and our services, but; that is nothing compared to the gratitude expressed by the individuals and families we serve.
Thank you so much for helping us deliver on the promise of a great day – every day!
