Adopt A Dream is now part of Sunshine Foundation’s main website. Please visit our new

Adopt A Dream page to view children waiting to have their dreams fulfilled.


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 200 children throughout the United States who are waiting to be sponsored. The most popular dream is a request for a trip to the central Florida attractions. Your group can hold a fundraiser to answer the dream of a child on our waiting list! The average cost of adopting a Special Dream-Florida Theme Parks Trip is $5,500. You may also adopt a Special Dream at $2,200 or a Shopping Spree Dream at $1,100. A small processing fee has been added to Adopt A Dream costs.

You can help by Adopting A Child’s Dream! All of the children on the right are waiting for their Dream Come True.  Click on the name of a child to make a donation that will be applied to that child’s Dream. In order to be able to continue fulfilling dreams, a portion of the funds raised will go towards administrative expenses, and any amounts received over a child’s particular Dream will go directly to the Sunshine Foundation to help other children. Once a child’s Dream has been funded, he or she will come off the waiting list and be scheduled to receive the requested Dream.

You can also donate to answer the dream of any child on Sunshine Foundation’s Waiting List.

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