About Us

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.

Special Dreams

Sunshine Foundation’s special dreams can be anything from a celebrity meet and greet, a family trip, a shopping spree, or adaptive medical or therapeutic equipment!  Our dreamers have requested and received items such as above-ground swimming pools, outdoor play equipment, sensory rooms, and many other amazing dream items.

Magical Dreams

When asked the question, “If you could have one dream, what would it be?” the most common response from the children we serve is to visit the Central Florida theme parks. Our magical dreams may include visits to Legoland, Disney, SeaWorld, Universal, and more. Children get to meet their favorite characters, enjoy the rides, and take in all the amazing sights.

Dream Village

Sunshine Foundation has its own Dream Village in Davenport, FL, where families may stay while on a dream trip to Central Florida! The Dream Village features nine fairy tale-themed cottages plus accessible amenities, including a heated zero-entry swimming pool, a mini-golf course, and a playground!
