What we fund

Sunlight Giving partners with organizations that provide:


Prevention services to avoid families from becoming homeless in the first place through emergency financial assistance and legal support.

Emergency Shelters

Emergency and transitional shelters and housing that ensure families have a roof over their head on any given night.

Systems Change

Policy, advocacy, and systems work to improve the system of homeless services and affordable housing.

What We Look For

We look for organizations that are able to address immediate needs of homeless or housing-insecure families, while also helping get them into stable, long-term housing.

What We Don't Fund

Shelters for single adults, housing related to mental health or addiction treatments, or projects to develop housing.
