Starlight Children’s Foundation is on a mission to improve quality of life for children, families and communities around the world. Starlight does this by aligning with global, national and community partners to advance children’s health in every dimension – from prevention and protection to safety and stability to comfort and care – because children are the foundation of our families and of our communities.
Founded in 1982, Starlight invests in programs and partners in 11 countries and territories around the world. It is no wonder Starlight has accrued numerous accolades and awards.
