Virtual Volunteer Opportunities

Are you looking for online volunteer opportunities? Have you always wanted to volunteer for Sunshine Foundation in some way, but don’t live near our office in PA, our Dream Village in FL, or one of our All-Volunteer Chapters?

Social Media Ambassador

Follow us on your favorite social media sites and simply like, share and comment on our posts! This will help spread awareness to people who have not heard of Sunshine Foundation before! 

Development Support

Lend a hand in the planning and/or executions of special fundraising events, golf tournaments, yard sales, raffles, and much more. Join a committee to help plan official Sunshine Foundation events.

Funding Ambassador

Create a Facebook Fundraiser on your personal page or choose a child on our Adopt A Dream page and help raise funds to make their Dream Come True! This is a great volunteer opportunity for schools, groups, companies…or a group of family members and friends! Contact adoptadream@sunshinefoundation.org to get started with your personal Adopt A Dream fundraising link!
