Refer a Child

Thank you for your interest in referring a child. A child may be referred by anyone, with the permission of the child’s parent(s) or legal guardian(s). However, if you are not the child’s parent(s) or legal guardian(s) you must provide an email address for the child’s parent/guardian. Please be aware that Sunshine Foundation does have a waiting list that may possibly be several years depending on location and our funding sources. Therefore, if your child appears to meet the criteria, please be sure to submit and complete the referral as soon as possible.

  • NOTE: Sunshine Foundation grants the dream of only ONE child per household. In order to ensure donor funds are being utilized appropriately, we will reach out to various organizations to ensure a dream/wish or other gift has not already been provided.
