Outstanding Impact Programs

Corporate Well-being Programs for Small Business and Non Profit Organizations

Improve the well-being of your employees, and your bottom line as a small business
or nonprofit organization through employee health programs.

Butter and Sunshine Wellness offers health and wellness programming for employees that guides them to make small, achievable changes in their daily habits and routines that are doable, with sustainability as the goal in mind.

A recent study by Cigna shows a 47% increase in return on investment (ROI) for when companies invest in a health and wellness program. The study also projects that return on investment will increase to 52% by 2026.

When your employees are happier and healthier, so is your bottom line –
which means your organization is making a bigger impact in the world.

.Employees in small business and nonprofit work have a higher percentage of burnout, illness, and low morale.

Employees in the small business and nonprofit arena are committed to making a difference in the world.

But as the saying goes, one must put the oxygen mask on first before helping others.

People who work for small businesses and nonprofit organizations work tirelessly, and putting the organization first before one’s own health is worn as a badge of honor.

But the badge of honor mentality comes at a price: employees are taking more sick days, have lower morale, and overall aren’t producing work as effectively as needed. In other words, they are “quiet quitting.”

Your organization needs to implement something to increase productivity, boost morale, and reduce these absences and turnovers – but you’re not sure of the best way to do that.

Tired Woman at Work

Your organization deserves employees who feel healthy and energetic, who work efficiently, and who make an impact.

And your employees deserve a culture of health, well-being, and support.

Why Butter and Sunshine Wellness?

My name is Julie Graham, founder of Butter and Sunshine Wellness.

I have worked in small business and nonprofits most of my life, from working for a woman-owned marketing business, and a woman-owned communications organization, to copywriting for the Sierra Club, NRDC, Project Angel Food and the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. I have also donated my time working for political groups, most recently volunteering for organizations like Food on Foot, that helps feed and house the homeless of Los Angeles.

I know from first-hand experience that burnout, illness and chronic health issues raise their ugly head when employees in these organizations go all out, and give their all to a burgeoning small business or to a great cause.

Butter and Sunshine Wellness will bring balance to your workforce by facilitating corporate well-being programs that create an environment of health and healing so your employees can thrive, not just survive, and can contribute their best to the workplace.


As a small business or nonprofit, you have a mission to make an impact, but your company or organization can only do that with happy, healthy, and productive employees.

In short, your employees are your company’s highest assets.

We help employees who are unhealthy, unhappy, and burnt out feel energetic, engaged, and efficient with corporate well-being programs that promote small, sustainable changes that add up to big, positive health outcomes long-term. It’s a win-win!

Butter and Sunshine Wellness Corporate Health Programs can help your organization reduce healthcare costs, increase attendance, improve productivity, and slow down the turnover rate.

You’re just 3 simple steps from healthier employees as a nonprofit organization.

Results You Can Trust

According to Dr. Ron Goetzel with Cornell University’s Institute for Health and Productivity Studies (see study), the average employee has at least two risks linked to increased healthcare costs, increased absences and decreased productivity averaging an employer $3,000 – $4,000 in additional costs yearly. Companies investing in at least $150 per year per employee equates to $450 annual return on investment (ROI).

The benefits to physical, emotional and mental health are clear, as well as employee morale and retention when they themselves feel cared for.

Simply stated, employee health and well-being is something you can’t afford NOT to invest in.


As a result of working with Julie, my team is more knowledgeable about what they need to do to manage their stress, and keep it at a healthy level, which affects productivity, not to mention their weight and body composition, which of course makes them happier. I highly recommend you contact Julie and learn about her corporate programs. She is very positive and fun to work with, and she knows a lot about what it takes to help employees get and stay healthy.
