THE SUNSHINE FUND
Who Are We
The Sunshine Fund, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, was created in memory of Noelle Starr Arpin. Noelle was born on September 13, 2015. In her short week here, and since then, both she and her family have benefited from many organizations and individuals through their support, contributions, and desire to keep her memory alive. While Noelle was in the hospital, she received care from top-notch medical providers. Of note, Noelle’s nurses, provided far more to Noelle and her family than they learned in medical school. Because of Noelle’s nurses, she was able to go for a walk outside, dance with her parents in a private space, get a haircut, create beautiful masterpieces of footprints and handprints, read stories, and so much more. Because of this impact, one effort of the Sunshine Fund is to honor and support aspiring pediatric and/or NICU nurses through a scholarship funded in part by the Sunshine Fund. The Sunshine Fund commits to making regular contributions to organizations, individuals, etc. that support children and families experiencing infant/child illness and/or loss.
The Sunshine Fund seeks to provide small moments of “sunshine” and acts of kindness through gifts to various individuals, charities, organizations, etc. that contribute to, or directly support, families and children experiencing infant/child loss or illness.
