It is a thrill to announce that Starr King School has received $500,000 to launch our new educational model!

This gift — the largest cash contribution for programs in the school’s history — will serve as a dollar-for-dollar match to raise $1 million over the next year.

Our new educational model will increase enrollment and diversify access to the school by hiring recruitment staff, initiating marketing strategies and expanding educational technologies for in-house and low-residency students. It will deepen how Starr King embodies Unitarian Universalism at its best, including our commitments to educating to counter oppressions and foster multi-faith engagement.

In the two weeks since our $500,000 donor (who asked to remain anonymous) made the gift, three other donors have pledged $40,000 toward the matching dollars. We are well on our way to $1 million!

This is the time to give, and give generously, to the innovative work of Starr King School. Click here to make an online gift and it will be doubled by the matching funds.
