Sunshine Foundation’s sole purpose is to answer the dreams of chronically ill, seriously ill, physically challenged and abused children ages three to eighteen, whose families cannot fulfill their requests due to financial strain that the child’s illness may cause.

Learn more about our Dream Programs and how you can request a dream come true for a child.

We rely on your generosity to help make these childrens' dreams come true.
