Together we can make a difference

The Shine Project Foundation is a public benefit nonprofit 501c3 in Carlsbad, California.

We aim to bridge the gap between families with children, teens, and young adults with special needs and local communities by partnering with businesses and organizations to provide special enrichment events and inclusive opportunities.

We are proud to host our signature Shine Beach Fun Day, Shine Arts Showcase and Dance, Shine Field day and Family Picnic, and Shine Camps.

These events help to connect families with local resources, spread awareness and outreach in the community, and promote a healthy, active, creative life and well being for all with special needs.

All of our events are free for special needs families and are made possible only with community support, donations, sponsorships, and volunteers (Excludes fundraiser events and specialty opportunities which may require a nominal fee).
