The Little Sunshine Foundation is a non-profit California corporation organized and operated exclusively for
charitable purposes. The organization’s mission is to provide underprivileged youth in the community the necessary resources to improve their quality of life through literacy and sports programs while also providing an avenue to train young adults on how to give back to their community, because we believe every child deserves a little sunshine.
Our organization has designed and developed 3 programs in furtherance of our mission.
The Little Sunshine Foundation’s Literacy Program aims to advance literacy, because it is the foundation for a child’s success in school and in life. The Literacy Program will provide disadvantaged kindergarten to eighth grade students with new or gently used books as well reading tools to improve reading proficiency.
The Little Sunshine Foundation’s Sports Program aims to provide supportive services to disadvantaged youth, ages 4 to 18 years of age, that would allow them access to play sports. The sports program will provide youth with athletic shoes, athletic equipment, and financial support for uniforms and sporting fees.
The Youth Ambassador Program provides opportunities for youth to contribute to their communities in a meaningful way. We believe that involving youth as partners in this mission increases the likelihood empowering them with leadership opportunities and helps them become empathetic, reflective individuals, setting them on a course to becoming community leaders.
