Corporate Sponsorships are also available to businesses that desire to reinvest in local communities. These sponsors will be featured on promotional materials before, at, and after the event.

STARS has a proud legacy of care and commitment to individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities, creating quality opportunities for life-long empowerment and success.  We are a place where our participants socialize, grow, and learn with programs and activities that focus on them and the things they love to do.  Through our doors is their safe place to engage with friends and a gateway to being a part of a community, sharing lots of laughs and collaboration along the way.

STARS provides guidance for our participants to find their passion and purpose while developing new friendships and confidence in themselves.  We recognize and value the potential of each participant, and we strive to build life-changing experiences that last for decades.  Our goal is to become a second home for participants through an enriching experience that treats them as valuable members of our STARS family.


Is my donation tax-deductible? Yes!
The need for generous philanthropic support continues to grow in response to declines in state funding for programs such as ours.  We are a 501(c)3 tax exempt organization and your donation is tax-deductible within the guidelines of U.S. law.  Your contribution may be tax deductible and/or qualify for the Arizona State Tax Credit.

Donating to STARS through the Arizona Tax Credit is one of the most valuable ways for AZ residents to contribute to qualified charitable organizations.  For the Arizona Tax Credit, please reference QCO Code 20117.  Please consult your tax professional.

Our all-volunteer Board of Directors ensures sound financial management practices.
