Christ’s Starfish Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that is devoted to two things. We work with the child life specialists at Wolfson Children’s Hospital in Jacksonville, FL, Shands Hospital in Gainesville, FL and Sacred Heart Hospital in Pensacola, FL to help all the children in the hospital. In addition we work with the families of non-cancer patients in these hospitals to assist them with any challenges they may experience due to the hospitalization of their child. Examples of things we may help with would be electric bills, rent or mortgage payments, food or gas expenses, as well as any other need they may have. (The cancer patients have access to two other resources). One of our biggest projects is to provide gifts for the children who are in the hospital on Christmas Day.
To provide this assistance we need partners. If you feel led to partner with us you can donate in several ways.
A gift of cash enables you to help meet the needs of families in your community who have challenges due to their child’s illness. It also allows you to receive a deduction on your income tax.
- Individual cash or credit donation.
- Participate in our annual golf tournament/silent auction fundraiser in the spring of each year.
- Participate in our Brasstown Valley Resort and Spa “Swing for the Kids” Celebrity event. You can donate or pay your entry online.
