Welcome to adopt a dream!


Sunshine Foundation, the original wish granting organization, answers the dreams of chronically ill, seriously ill, physically challenged and abused children ages three to eighteen, whose families cannot fulfill their dream requests due to the financial strain that the child’s illness may cause.

You can help make a child’s Dream come True. The Sunshine Foundation has a waiting list of over 400 children throughout the United States who are waiting for a special dream come true. The most popular dream is a request for a trip to the Orlando attractions. The average cost of Adopting a Dream is $5,000.

Donate to answer the dream of a child on Sunshine Foundation’s Waiting List.

Thank you for taking the time to visit, donate, and share the wonderful stories and dreams!
