For the second year in a row, Star Island is a proud partner in #GivingTuesday. This day highlights the importance of giving back, and giving to organizations that are meaningful to you. Star Island, like many other non-profits, relies on donations to continue its mission. Our recent solar array installation and other sustainability efforts are one of several projects that people directly impact when choosing to donate to Star Island.
#GivingTuesday is a grassroots movement that started three years ago out of New York City. It has quickly grown into an international event which sees great involvement from people on social media providing reasons why they gave to important causes or organizations.
Star’s main goal on #GivingTuesday is to draw focus to our Annual Fund, and end-of-year giving. Gifts to the Annual Fund support all aspects of Star Island’s mission from purchasing new mattresses to offering guidance for conference leaders. Each donation, no matter the monetary value, goes a long way to sustaining a welcoming community each summer on Star Island.
