Reasons to Give Monthly: Shining Stars

Donating to Starlight is a great way to support our mission to deliver happiness to seriously ill kids. Still, it’s so easy to make your impact even greater by giving monthly and becoming a Shining Star!

As a Shining Star, you are part of a passionate group of monthly givers who want to shine even brighter with Starlight. Your monthly gifts make a world of difference to hospitalized children, allowing us to focus on delivering immediate and tangible benefits to kids and families, helping them to feel better and heal faster. You aren’t just donating to Starlight—you are personally lighting the way for seriously ill kids to experience joy and happiness.

You can even help kids in your community by using your gifts to fund a local program placement.
