Delivering 50 Percent of Programs to Medically Underserved Communities

In 2020, Starlight made a commitment to change in response to racial injustice and violence. We examined the populations we serve and how we can better distribute our programs to those who need them most.  

We are thrilled to announce the next step in this commitment to change - in 2022, 50% of Starlight programs will be delivered to children’s facilities caring for the vulnerable and underserved.

Many of these pediatric patients come from racially and ethnically diverse backgrounds, live in low-income households, or face barriers to health care access.

How you can help: 

  • Give to Starlight

A gift to Starlight ensures we have the funding to support the hospitals that need our programs most.

  • Sponsor a Hospital in Need

Through a direct donation or a fundraiser, you can help place Starlight programs at hospitals in our network that are waiting for programs. To get started, fill out our Sponsor a Hospital form and we will work with you to identify the program and hospital you would like to sponsor. 

  • Spread the word

Starlight programs are funded by donors like you. The more people helping to fund programs, the greater an impact we can make in the communities that need them most.
