“I started Sunny Day Fund® because I know what it’s like to live with financial insecurity and instability. I used to think it was just me who lived that way, but when I learned that I was actually the norm – that ‘the rest of us’ were actually the ‘most of us’ – I poured my heart into finding a way to create a truly inclusive, equitable, and resilient financial system. With the scars of COVID-19 fresh on our minds, I find hope in the incredible organizations that are achieving great outcomes by doing good by their employees – and we proudly serve both groups at Sunny Day Fund®.”
It’s now common knowledge that most of us cannot handle a $400 unexpected expense. We know that all stakeholders want this to change, but we are held back by a way of thinking that’s nearly a half a century old. Sunny Day Fund® exists to bridge the gap between financial stability today and financial freedom tomorrow – we are on a mission to truly enable financial well-being for ALL 152M American workers by partnering with the organizations that employ them. That’s why we are building innovative financial technologies, starting with employer-rewarded emergency savings that stabilizes workers’ finances and enables their pursuit of economic freedom. With Sunny Day Fund®, employers can help American workers save for brighter days ahead and grow with greater resiliency.
How We Collaborate
At Sunny Day Fund®, we believe that all hardworking Americans – including those so often overlooked – deserve financial security with dignity. We need our nation’s workers to have the resilience to pay for an unexpected car repair or a hospital visit without breaking a sweat. We want people to experience complete well-being – using some of their savings in the things that bring them joy. And we aspire to build partnerships with organizations that see employees as key stakeholders to their success in achieving this vision. We summarize this sentiment with the following values that harmonize our everyday work:
- Mutual respect powers mutual success
- Be flexible on the how, not the why
- Transparent communication drives trust, which drives teamwork, which drives outcomes
- Get to yes, even if not now, next time
- All competitive instincts are turned outward, not inward
