Sunshine Giving

A great way to give back to others while celebrating a birthday party, Bar or Bat Mitzvah, a graduation, or to commemorate a special milestone or anniversary. The Sunshine Giving program can be customized to meet the specific needs of your event.

Examples of Sunshine Giving:

  • Encourage guests to make a donation to Project Sunshine instead of or in addition to, bringing gifts.
  • Before your celebration, collect books, toys or Band-Aids for hospitalized children.
  • Make "Sunny Gram" cards with your guests at the party.
  • Make "Craft Kits" or "Surgi Dolls" with your friends (Project Sunshine will show you how).

Planned Giving

Planned gifts are popular because they can provide valuable tax benefits and/or income for life. Whether cash or other assets, such as securities, real estate, artwork, or partnership interests, the benefits of a planned gift can make this type of charitable giving very attractive to both the donor and charity. Planned gifts can:
