Child Application

Please be sure to submit everything listed within the application, including income verification and Sunshine’s medical authorization form. Sunshine Foundation will not process incomplete applications. If incomplete, Sunshine will keep your application for 6 months after which you will be asked to repeat the referral and application process.

  • The Sunshine Foundation®’s sole purpose is to answer the dreams of seriously ill, physically challenged and abused children, whose families cannot fulfill their requests due to the financial strain that the child’s illness may cause. Your child’s social worker, aide, relative, etc. may be able to assist in completing this application.
  •  We are unable to assist with doctor/medical bills or living expenses. Please be aware Sunshine Foundation® must also work within certain financial limitations and permissible requests. Your child’s medical and/or travel restrictions, or other related or unrelated circumstance, may also affect the dream we are able to provide.
  • Please fill out COMPLETELY and return the application with required paperwork as soon as possible. You will receive written notification upon approval of the application. Referrals for which we have not received an application and all other requested information within six months will be disposed of.
  • Dreams are answered on a first come, first serve basis, with the exception of children whose illnesses demand immediate attention. It is important you update the Foundation with any address or phone number changes in order we may reach you. Reapplication may be required if we are unable to reach you.
  • Sunshine Foundation® does not fulfill requests for children or any other family members who have had a previous dream granted by Sunshine Foundation® or any other organization. Sunshine grants ONE DREAM PER FAMILY.
  • Print clearly, or type and sign where indicated.
  • All information will be kept confidential.
