FAQ – Fundraising
Why should I fundraise or donate?
Your fundraising and donation dollars provide extra support to expenses incurred by FUNSHINE for toys, supplies, field trips, etc. These funds supplement the budget so that more money is available to aid in providing high quality programs, to cover operating costs, and to provide competitive wages to retain quality child care providers.
How are my contributions used?
Each year, FUNSHINE budgets for upcoming expenses and puts together a list of items that fundraising/donations could help fund. In the past, fundraising dollars have been used to pay for items that have improved the quality of our programming such as a 4-seat infant stroller.
Do I have to fundraise/donate?
