We are always grateful for the generous support of our sponsors, but in 2020 they have gone above and beyond.

The family of sponsors listed here are honoring their pledged Gala sponsorship dollars and reshaping them as donations.

Our presenting sponsor, the Ford Motor Company Fund, led the way by being the first to convert their $100,000 sponsorship to a Starfish donation. Their gift laid the groundwork for the newly named Great Hearts Fund.

We recognize that all of us are under great personal and professional pressure right now. And decisions are difficult. Yet, during this unprecedented and precautionary time, these Great-Hearted Friends never wavered.

We won’t be able to thank them in person on May 8, but we applaud them here and now (and every day) for their dedication to Starfish, our community, and the greater good. 

(As of May 8, 2020)
