ORGANIZATION MISSION

The Sunnycrest Manor Auxiliary is a 501(c)(3) public charity whose mission is to generate resources to enhance the quality of life for residents at Dubuque’s Sunnycrest Manor.   While Sunnycrest Manor has a long history with volunteers working in various capacities, the Auxiliary was formally organized as a charitable organization in August 2013 and received tax-exempt status as a public charity in July 2014.  As a public charity, the Sunnycrest Auxiliary now plays an increasing role in fund-raising for life enrichment activities and securing grants for special larger projects that enhance resident’s life.

The Auxiliary operates under the leadership of a seven member Auxiliary Board including two who are also members of the Dubuque County Hospital Board of Trustees. The Auxiliary Board works closely with the Sunnycrest administrators and department heads to provide the “extras” which enhance the quality of life for residents.

Below are ways you can help grow our mission and provide services to those most in need in the Dubuque community
