Get Involved

Every child deserves a chance at life and we need you to help us find the cure we so desperately seek.  How can you help? 

Corporate Sponsorship

Imagine being able to say to a small child and their family, our company helped find a cure.  Through corporate sponsorship, your company has the opportunity to support a small non-for-profit charity that is raising funds with the goal of finding a cure for neuroblastoma, an aggressive and deadly childhood cancer that affects very young children. Our foundation is run entirely by dedicated volunteers which means that 100 percent of your corporate donation goes directly to our research program. Because of the relatively small number of children diagnosed with neuroblastoma, when compared with adult malignancies, it is not seen as being as important in the overall scheme of cancer research, and other funding is rarely available.   

Corporate sponsors are important to the function of a charity like You Are My Sunshine Foundation because it allows us certainty to plan for our future research. If your company is looking for an opportunity to make a difference to the lives of little children who are not much more than babies, and to give them a chance at life, please consider our foundation.

The most common type of corporate sponsorship is financial. With this type of sponsorship, your organization pledges to donate money for our research program.  We have gift deductible status with the Australian Taxation Office and all donations $2 and over are tax deductible.

Create a fundraiser 

There are so many different ways that you can raise funds through your own fundraising event.  Create your own, it's easy to do and manage. Perhaps think about one of these simple fundraising ideas. 

BBQ, car wash, gold coin drive, donate an hour's salary, fashion parade, donation in lieu of gifts, guess the weight/number, shave your hair, swear box at home or work, wine tasting, trivia night, ten pin bowling, skip lunch and donate the cost, odd socks work day, office raffle (just bake a cake), movie night.  So many different way that you can help us.
