We maximise the impact of your donation
At Starlight, your donated dollar really has a BIG impact. A study conducted by PwC in 2012 shows that for every $1 invested into our Starlight Express Room program, there's a return of over $4 to the community. Updated figures in 2018 reflect our extended programs reach and an increased return of $5.70 to the community.
*PwC research has shown Starlight’s in hospital programs delivers a social return on investment ratio of 4.1:1. Updated figures for 2018 reflect an increased return of 5.7:1
Your donation will bring smiles to the faces of sick kids
Starlight is the only children’s charity with a permanent presence such as our Starlight Express Rooms in every children's hospital in Australia. Our hospital programs do not receive any government funding, so your donations really are essential to bringing fun, play and laughter to sick kids!
We share the stories of children you have helped
We will share amazing stories of bravery and recovery so you can see for yourself, how your support brightens the lives of seriously ill children and their families.
We shine brightly in governance
Governance is really important to us. We adhere to all the relevant Charitable and Trade Practices Acts at both national and state level. Starlight is also a member of the Fundraising Institute Australia, the Public Fundraising Regulatory Authority and the Children’s Charities Leadership Forum.
