Build a Sustainable Future with Us

On this Giving Tuesday, we want to share our gratitude for every single supporter, old and new, who has given the gift of time, talent, and dollars to support our mission.

We are exceedingly proud that since North Star Reach opened in 2016, our supporters have made it possible for us to offer more than 4,500 transformative experiences to children with serious illnesses and their families, all at no charge to them.

This past year, thanks to countless donors and volunteers, hundreds of campers and their families connected safely for in-person camp programs, the first since the pandemic began. In celebration, our community came together at camp for Under the North Star 2022, a special evening of connection with our mission and generosity from donors and corporate sponsors.

We can’t thank you enough for your belief in North Star Reach, especially during this time of difficult transition.

Today, we ask you to meet us in this moment: The reality is that despite our recent efforts to secure enough funding to provide high-quality, medically-supported camp experiences that meet our gold standards, we are still facing a significant gap. Bringing down expenses to ensure North Star Reach will be here for future generations of children has led to the suspension of 2023 in-person programs and staff reductions. As we know is true for our camp community, we are deeply saddened by these actions but know we can build a stronger tomorrow together.

As we move toward a sustainable future, individuals like you continue to be a critical foundation to an aspirational fundraising goal in the coming years. Which is why on this GivingTuesday, we’re asking if you would consider two easy ways to help support our future:

  • Volunteer your time for a service project at camp in 2023
  • Chip in $25, $50, or whatever you can, to show your support

Every hour of service and dollar raised will contribute to our efforts to chart a sustainable path forward, and for that we can’t express our gratitude enough. 

Thank you for being by our side as we move into the future.
