Our Supporters

The support of individuals, foundations, organizations, Montgomery County government and corporations provides approximately 49% of our annual budget.  Sunflower is proud to receive donations ranging from $5 to $50,000 to offset the operations and growth of our programs.

Our non-profit social enterprise serves a critical community need and is market-driven. Fifty-one percent of our operating budget comes from the sale of our delicious, high quality baked goods and program fees. The balance of our funding is raised from committed and generous public, corporate and private funders. If you would like your business to become a corporate sponsor, please contact daphna@sunflowerbakery.org.
