Who We Are:

Giving back to the community and neighbors is as equally important to our organization as growing our business and profits. The work we do with corporate and entrepreneur clients allows us to provide valuable expert services at a lower cost to women and minorities who are in the early stages of their Storymaking journey. In addition, we are committed to giving back to the community abundantly.

Our investment in people shows up as cash donations, volunteer hours, pro bono services, discounted rates, and board-member service.

We invest in five target areas:

  • Uplifting women
  • Uplifting Black women and women of color
  • Uplifting teen moms
  • Supporting anti-domestic violence
  • Sponsoring celebrations and holidays for children

Each year, Sunshine Media Network donates up to five video projects to companies and nonprofits that align with our five target areas. The video projects range from $3,000 to $7,000 in value and are based on the organization’s needs.
