The 5th Annual Funding Our Future: Pathways to Success luncheon held on October 20th was the most successful to date! Our largest annual fundraiser to date (see graphic) will allow the Foundation to enhance and enrich its already successful projects and programs benefitting the students of the Sunnyside Unified School District. To all of you that made the luncheon a tremendous success through contributions, entertainment, attendance or some other form of support, we could not do it without you. THANK YOU!

Grant Donation 2016

At the April Sunnyside Unified School District Governing Board meeting, The Sunnyside Foundation was recognized “for your extraordinary support of our health services programs.

This was recognition for our support of Nurses’ offices district wide in providing Back to Basics grants ($250.00 maximum) for purchase of Nutritional Snacks for intervention in diabetic episodes suffered by student’s with diabetes throughout the district.  Expansion of this concept will include Diabetic Kits for emergency use in classrooms and on school buses.  During the past 2 years, The Foundation has funded over six thousand dollars in Back to Basics, Emergency/Flexible funding grants.
