Your financial support is necessary to sustain our services now and in the future. There is no dedicated funding for Daystar Kids life-saving pediatric nursing services, special education programs and innovative center-based programs. There are many ways to support Daystar Kids.

You can truly support children with critical health care and developmental needs in your community by making a recurring monthly donation. It’s easy and convenient for you and it helps us save a lot on paper and mailing costs, allowing more of your investment to go directly to funding our innovative services.

An Honor or Memorial Gift is a very special way to honor a loved one. It's a living memorial that lasts forever and is also a thoughtful way to tell a friend, relative or family that you care. The family is sent a letter informing them of the gift. An Honor or Memorial Gift can be the perfect remembrance for a family member, or friend, in recognition of a retirement, wedding, birthday or other special occasion. There are many ways to support Daystar Kids. Please feel free to contact us with any questions.
