Annual kick-off

Sunday's Child is excited to announce our new January event, the ANNUAL KICK-OFF. At the Kick-Off, on January 12, 2017 at the Pensacola Musuem of Art, members and sponsors met and mingled as well as learned about the exciting accomplishments of Sunday's Child and the grant cycle process. We also learned that grant dollars of $128,500 are available for this year's competition.  Members signed up for their favorite focus group area and will learn more about the wonderful not-for-profit grant proposals in store for 2017.

SUPPORTING OUR CHARITIES 

The 30 local charities who applied to Sunday's Child for a grant in 2016 do a tremendous job in making the Greater Pensacola Area a better place.  Unfortunately, only two receive grant dollars from Sunday's Child, and ALL of these non-profits can use our support.   

Below is a compilation of the non-profits who submitted a 2016 grant project and their current needs. Some of these are items necessary to sustain their mission and others include volunteer work with donations of time and service.

PLEASE TAKE A LOOK AND SEE HOW YOU CAN CONTINUE TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
