We are pleased to announce that we will be hosting our second annual Night of Starrs event on April 11, 2018! To celebrate the strong spirit of generosity within our backyard, Starr Commonwealth will be presenting local leaders and champions for children with the Stand Tall Award, which honors leaders that share our commitment of the creating positive environments for children and families to flourish.
There are many ways to become a donor to an organization like Starr Commonwealth: you can volunteer your time, make monetary contributions, or create a planned gift to continue your contributions after you pass. Or, if you are Dr. Larraine Matusak, you can do all three.
At Starr, our employees believe in the work that we do for children, families and communities. That’s why so many of our staff members choose to give back to our organization, either through annual gifts, sponsoring events, or payroll deduction. Brandy Jurdzy, our current Grant Writer and future Research Analyst here at Starr, is no exception.
We are all aware of the recent tragedies that have befallen our country in the past months: shootings, wildfires, and multiple hurricanes have caused devastation to those who live in the affected areas.
This devastation is not solely felt by adults. So many children have lost their homes, lost family members, or are living in a state of uncertainty for an extended period of time. But, in the words of the immortal Mr. Rogers, “look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.”
As you may have heard, Giving Tuesday is once again approaching! This national day of giving takes place after Black Friday and Cyber Monday, and is your chance to show the organizations that mean the most to you how you feel about them.
This year, we have a generous benefactor, George Franklin, who is challenging fellow supporters to double their impact – for the first $5,000 given to Starr on November 28, he will match it!
