As a Shining Star...

As a Shining Star, you will feel connected, inspired and invested. Here’s what you can expect once you join:

  • Quarterly impact reports that show how your investment is delivering happiness to seriously ill kids throughout the country

  • A Starlight pin to wear proudly on a bag or your lapel

  • Exclusive communications from our CEO, Board Chair members and Starlight families

  • Behind the scenes look at program developments

  • Annual “surprise gifts” from our corporate partners

  • End of year annual report on your impact

My biggest fear of giving to nonprofits is that only a fraction of the donation actually makes an impact. I don’t have that fear with Starlight. Who wouldn’t want to bring joy to these children who have had so much of their normal childhood taken from them already?

Seeing my son in the hospital after surgery was terrifying. But, as soon as they introduced him to the Starlight Gaming Station, his eyes lit up. He started talking more. It was great just to see him be normal again.
