Small Acts…. BIG Impacts (Sunshine Fund)

Small Acts….Big impacts (Sunshine Fund)

The month of Love…. February! What better way to express your love for Rotary than to support our annual Sunshine Fund Members Appeal? We are launching our annual members campaign in February with two goals: 

100% of our Membership Support

 The Sunshine Fund Members Appeal

To Raise $4,000.00

Sunshine Fund Donations help support the many projects & initiatives of our Rotary Club. You can make a one-time donation or consider starting a monthly donation. Over 3700 children & youth will benefit from your donation.

$10.00 a month will provide nutritional snack to children in 4 local schools
$20.00 a month will provide literacy programs and put books in the hands of kids
$25.00 a month will provide Junior Achievement Programs for grade 6, 7 & 8 students
$50.00 a month will help support the COREKids After School Program

A one-time gift of $100 will help support international projects such as the Liberian Learning Centre.

Either a monthly donation or a one-time donation helps us raise the $4,000 and have 100% of our Rotary Members support the work of our Rotary Club.

Make your Sunshine Fund Members Donation. No event to sell tickets or volunteer at. A simple gesture of kindness can make a big difference in the lives of children & youth locally and internationally.

The Rotary Sunshine Fund is the charitable arm of the Rotary Club of Hamilton. The Sunshine Fund allows Rotary the opportunity to receive donations and sponsorships and be able to acknowledge those gifts with a tax receipt under the guidelines of CRA.
