The Starlight Wish List platform is the world’s first online giving marketplace that transforms the way individual philanthropists and corporations at every level of giving improve the point-of-care experience for pediatric patients all around the country.
“Starlight Wish Lists are a virtual philanthropic ecosystem connecting donors with hundreds of facilities to support the critical unmet needs of millions of kids and families directly at the point-of-care.”
---Jacquie Hart, Global CEO of Starlight Children’s Foundation
Registered Starlight partner facilities – including hospitals, clinics, respite houses, hospices and camps – can publish a customized Wish List of critical unmet needs on Starlight.org requesting Starlight’s proprietary programs or other items that will improve the life and health of the kids and families they serve. The program is available to charitable hospital foundations and non-profit or public pediatric facilities in all 50 states and Puerto Rico.
“The Starlight Wish List program is so much more than just toys and games. Where you see a can of Play-Doh, I see a tool to help my pediatric patients understand how cancer cells form a tumor, and how we treat it to help them get better.”
---Tanya, M.S., C.C.L.S.
Individual donors can search by geographic location, facility name or specialty served, and simply point, click and ship items directly to their facility of choice, making it easy and possible to donate to any registered facility. All Starlight Wish List donations are timely, transparent and tangible with 100% of each donation directly funding items specifically requested by the facility. Donors receive a tax receipt for their entire contribution.
Additionally, corporations can make large quantity product donations to support registered facilities on a local, regional or national level. Since the program launched in July 2013, individuals and corporations have donated more than $300,000 in support of pediatric patients and their families.
