Your Donation Can Help StarShine Inspire Lives!


Imagine if you could grow the world's best schools where they've never been grown before. Sow them like seeds through the countryside, into the cities, and across the planet. At StarShine Academy, that's not just our dream, it's our mission.


StarShine Academy creates transformational community schools by igniting and enabling the aspirations of all children. We are dedicated to helping every child find their talent and grow into a peaceful, productive, and successful person. Honored by the United Nations and educational leaders, StarShine is a model for a new generation of community schools.

Our 4.5-acre flagship campus at 3535 E McDowell Road in Phoenix, Arizona is our robust research site to improve community learning and economic development.  Your donation to StarShine Academy will help our students, teachers, and many more around the world—receive all the education they deserve.

When you click the “Donate Now” button above, you’ll be taken to a page where you can securely select a donation amount and pay with a credit card.  Once you’ve donated, we’ll send you a digital receipt for your tax records.  You’ll be happy to know that all donations to StarShine Academy are tax-deductible, because we’re a 501 (c) (3) charitable organization.  So feel free to make as large a donation as you want.

Also, if you’re an Arizona resident, you are probably eligible for a credit for up to $400 (for a couple) or $200 (as an individual) for making a donation to StarShine Academy.  This means that the first $400 (or $200) of your donation will be repaid to you at tax time through a credit on your state tax return.  The remainder of your donation will be tax-deductible as a charitable donation.
