Sunshine Toyota: Alliance Partner with Hospital Foundation Wishlist
Wishlist is a local not-for-profit organisation dedicated to raising funds for the Sunshine Coast Health and Hospital Services. Sunshine Toyota has been a supporter of Wishlist for many years and in 2014 we strengthened that commitment by becoming an Alliance Partner.
Sunshine Toyota supports Wishlist in many ways including funding vehicles such as the Yaris used by the Extended Midwifery Service. In 2016 we also proudly took the naming-rights sponsorship for the Wishlist Melbourne Cup Charity Luncheon, a high-end race day event that raised over $51,000 for hospital equipment. We have a special deal in place for Hospital and Health Service employees where we donate $250 back to Wishlist for every vehicle they purchase.
Our team is proud of our Alliance Partnership with Wishlist and demonstrates this by volunteering for Wishlist fundraisers like Give Me 5 For Kids, Run Sunshine Coast and the Wishlist Row For Cancer.
For more about the great work they do, check out Wishlist's website.
Sunshine Toyota is a proud supporter of The Buderim Foundation
August of 2015 saw Sunshine Toyota proudly become a major sponsor of local not-for-profit organisation, The Buderim Foundation. Now in its 11th year, the Foundation is a philanthropic organisation that aims to enrich and enhance the quality of life for the Buderim community by generating income from donations and bequests and providing grants for worthwhile community projects.
In 2016 over $60,000 in grants was presented to local groups, schools and individuals. The Foundation has also done a wonderful job establishing philanthropic programs at a number of schools in the area and Sunshine Toyota is enthusiastic to assist in growing these programs further.
The Buderim Foundation has recently set up a Youth Sub Fund and has provided over $70,000 in its Youth Philanthropy Projects as well as community grants specifically for youth oriented projects, not to mention over $1000,000 channelled into the school community in the form of school vouchers. We see this sponsorship of the Buderim Foundation as exciting way to involve the whole team at Sunshine Toyota in strengthening the community and supporting the next generation of Sunshine Coast leaders.

The Sunshine Coast's BEST Surf Club: The Alex Surf Club
Living on the Sunshine Coast means having some of the best surf beaches in Australia on our doorstep. It also means that Surf Life Savers are a necessary part of life. Surf Life Saving is a community cause that Sunshine Toyota appreciates and values.
We have been proudly supporting the Alex Surf Club for over five years and during this time provided vehicles, equipment, sponsorship and signage that has assisted in making The Alex Surf Club and Sunshine Toyota synonymous with the Sunshine Coast.
The Alex Surf Club is a community-minded organisation whose values align with our own. Two years ago we hosted our inaugural Easter Egg Hunt event together, which tripled in size last year and is something we hope becomes a fun family tradition for our local community.
We are delighted with our partnership with the Alex Surf Club and we are proud of their continued contributions to the greater Sunshine Coast community.
Sunshine Toyota & Sunshine Coast Grammar School
Sunshine Toyota takes great pride in supporting the future leaders of the Sunshine Coast and has had a long and proud association with Sunshine Coast Grammar School. By sponsoring the school’s basketball teams Sunshine Toyota has contributed to developing opportunities for young people in sport on the coast.
Through the relationship built on these sponsorships Grammar Helping Hands approached Sunshine Toyota to assist with the development of their Encouraging Futures Project. It was with great pride that Sunshine Toyota supported three Grammar students in their journey to Maliana, Timor L’este, to further develop the educational resources for this remote under developed community. Sunshine Toyota was keen to support this endeavour, as it not only provides learning experiences that promote social awareness and self-confidence but it engages students with the broader community.
