Support an Event

Each year, hundreds of events are held to raise funds for STARS. These events are organized and sponsored by the communities in which we serve and provide significant funds to STARS.

There are several ways you can support an event.

Host an event

Many of our events are initiated by supporters like you. If you have an idea for an event or would like to host one for STARS, we would be happy to work with you, provide resources, and offer guidance and support. Please contact our Foundation events team by calling 1-877-516-2751 or by email.


A gift-in-kind can be donated towards a STARS event and can help with event-related expenses. A charitable tax receipt can be issued for any tangible gift to STARS. For example, if you donated an item to a STARS auction, you could submit an invoice showing the item’s fair market value in order to receive a tax receipt for the amount.

Please note that gift-in-kind receipts cannot be issued for services or for GST, PST, and/or HST.

For more information about gifts-in-kind please contact us.
