Sunrise Project relies on community contributions to keep our doors open. There are many different ways to show your support, whether it's by giving a monetary donation or donating to our Porch Pantry. Check below for details.

Become a Monthly Meal Sponsor

Every month, we spend over $1000 providing free community meals for the community.

For just $10 a month, you can cover the cost of five free community meals.

Your generosity doesn't go unnoticed! As a token of our appreciation, all our monthly sponsors are invited to join us at our biannual Gratitude Jubilee!

Our Gratitude Jubilee is a one of a kind Sunrise Project experience. This invite-only event gives you an opportunity to take a behind-the-scenes look at our mission and our process. Join us as we prepare a gourmet meal just for you - and celebrate all our accomplishments together!
