What is the Federal EIN number for Stars?
Stars’ tax id number is 95-4847950.
Is online giving secure?
It certainly is. We use PayPal and Authorize.net which are both PCI DSS compliant. This, in fact, makes the process more secure and credit card information is not saved.
Can I set-up recurring gifts?
Yes, you can. Contact Tonie Neuwirth at 626-817-4893 or email@example.com and she will take care of it for you.
How can I get a receipt for my gift?
Stars is a registered 501(c)(3) organization. We send out monthly contribution statements for all tax-exempt donations and a receipt for income tax purposes at the end of the calendar year.
Will I get receipted for non-cash gifts?
Yes. All items donated, like tickets for sporting events, school supplies for our tutoring programs, furniture, etc. will receive a signed Gift-in-Kind receipt.
How does Stars protect my privacy?
Stars respects and protects your privacy. We will never sell or trade your personal information to other individuals or companies. The information that you provide is used only to complete your donation. If you wish, Stars can send you more information about the programs that we offer.
We continue to utilize our entire Stars staff team and have redeployed our after-school staff to meet the challenges of this season. Our incredible team is connecting with families and volunteers, gathering supplies, connecting with church and nonprofit partners, delivering meals, and creatively reimagining our programs online to continue our vital support systems for students. We need your financial support to continue this important work.
The results of surveying our Stars families show we need toilet paper, feminine products, and non-perishable food items (particularly rice and beans). We also need masks, gloves, and cleaning products for staff delivering meals and supplies. We can receive donations at Villa 500 on Tuesday and Thursday from 11 am – 1 pm.
