Sunshine Fund

Supporting the community

TCGSL's charitable organization is the Sunshine Fund. It was established to help league members that have been impacted by a hardship. In addition, the organization has grown to show support more broadly within the LGBTA community.

The Sunshine Fund is, first and foremost, established to provide support to league members that are experiencing a hardship that may impact a league member, their family member, or their significant other. Often times, this may be the gesture of sending flowers when a loved one passes. Other times, this includes providing greater support to players that have been impacted by sever illness, like cancer. The league has been in the position to be able to provide a "gift" to help alleviate some of the impacts of their hardship. Some ways that we've helped include gift certificates for groceries or gas, and even at times providing funds for bills or prescriptions.

"Gifting" is done so on a case by case basis upon submission or request from a fellow league member. Any league member may initiate a request for consideration. If you or someone you know may be experiencing a hardship and you think we can help, please send an email to the Sunshine Fund league representative by clicking the Request Gift or Donation button below. Requests are reviewed weekly and updates are provided to team managers at TCGSL Managers' meetings.

In addition, the Sunshine Fund may be used to support local nonprofit organizations that provide services targeted towards the LGBTA community. As a good steward to the broader community, TCGSL provides one time donations (budgeted annually) to organizations like the MN Aids Walk, or Red Ribbon Ride, to name a couple. If you know of an organization within these parameters, please send an email to the Sunshine Fund league representative by clicking the Request Gift or Donation button below. Requests are submitted to the Board for review and approval.

Please note that donations will not be made to any partisan or political group.
