Greatest Need Fund
Your unrestricted gift to the Greatest Need Fund allows The SUN Foundation to fund the projects and programs that will have the greatest impact on the people we serve and their families.

-Providing respite for a family
-Removing transportation barriers for the people we serve, so they can seek meaningful employment
-Providing access to therapeutic services

All of the money raised by The SUN Foundation benefits the residents of Arapahoe and Douglas Counties and the city of Aurora. Choosing to support your local community has lots of positive benefits. Giving locally improves our quality of life and helps build a stronger local community.

Restricted gift
At The SUN Foundation, we recognize the connection that you may have to a specific program or need here at Developmental Pathways. With this in mind, we offer restricted giving options so you can earmark your donation to go directly to a specific program.

Please let us know if you want your gift used for a specific purpose, by indicating that purpose in a letter to us. Check out our initiatives section.

Multi-Year Pledge
A multi-year pledge can help you keep track of your giving and ensure that you continue to support the Greatest Need Fund each and every fiscal year.

Matching Gifts

Double the Impact!

Many companies offer matching gift programs to encourage employees and retirees to contribute to charitable organizations. Many of these programs match contributions dollar for dollar. Please check with your Human Resources Department to see if it offers a matching gift program that will match your gift to The SUN Foundation. If they do ask for a matching gift form, fill it out, and forward it to us here at The SUN Foundation. Some companies use electronic filling which eliminates the need for a matching gift form.
