The Sunshine Foundation of Canada

Social Service


What is your dream for your legacy? Do you hope to support vulnerable kids and their families? Create opportunities for young people and inspire brighter futures? Improve mental health outcomes? By leaving a gift to Sunshine in your Will, we can fulfill your dream by fulfilling the dreams of kids across the country.

The Sunshine Foundation of Canada changes the lives of children and youth living with severe physical disabilities or life-threatening illnesses. Through our Sunshine Dreams program, we create positive, long-lasting experiences that play an essential role in mental health, personal growth, and wellness.

Our Impact

Everyone has hopes and dreams. A Sunshine Dream is an individual experience, dreamed by a child and fulfilled by our dedicated team of dream makers. These experiences are as unique as the kids who dream them! From adapted bicycles and accessible playground equipment to bedroom makeovers and technology requests, Sunshine Dreams boost young futures.

By fulfilling their most cherished dreams, we help children and youth develop confidence, strength, and a positive sense of self. We help them learn to think differently about their futures and imagine new possibilities. By having their dreams come true, kids are inspired to keep dreaming, are more willing to try new things, and have a more positive outlook on life.

How your gift will be used

Legacy giving ensures that many children will live their dreams for years into the future, allowing you to do lasting good in your community while optimizing tax and other financial benefits. Professional advice from your lawyer, accountant, or financial advisor will help determine the best option for you.

There are over 63,000 children in Canada who currently qualify for our programs, making the need greater than ever before. With your support, we can create more impactful experiences that change the lives of kids and inspire confidence, independence, and optimism in dreamers for years to come.
