For forty years, Hope has been a safety net for Southwest Florida. Community support helps provide care for those who are in life’s final chapter, for all who are grieving, and for seriously ill children and their families. To learn more about how donations benefit the mission of Hope, please visit More Hope.

“Many don’t realize how much Hope relies on funds raised from events like Shine. It is only with the community’s support that we are able to provide Hope for everyone who needs our care.”


Shine offers many opportunities for businesses, foundations, and organizations to show their support for Hope’s mission. Each sponsorship greatly impacts the success of Shine and includes generous opportunities for recognition.
