CFOS Foundation Makes Grant to Starlight Children’s Foundation

Bellevue, WA — The Starlight Children’s Foundation – Northwest has been awarded a $10,000 grant by the CFOS Foundation. The grant will be used to support Starlight’s core programs for seriously ill children and their families.

Since 1992, Starlight Children’s Foundation Northwest has dedicated itself to improving the quality of life for children with chronic and life-threatening illnesses and life-altering injuries by providing entertainment, education, and family activities that help them cope with the pain, fear, and isolation of prolonged illness. Starlight Northwest touches the lives of more than 9,000 Washington and Oregon families each month. Their programs have been proven to distract children from their pain, help them better understand and manage their illnesses, and connect families with others facing similar challenges so that no one feels alone.

Starlight offers a comprehensive menu of outpatient, hospital-based, and web offerings that enable them to provide ongoing support for children and families ? from diagnosis through the entire course of medical treatment. Programs include family activities and outings, in-hospital entertainment technology, online communities and interactive websites, in-hospital playrooms, kid-friendly treatment rooms, special events, and educational programming.

Steve McGraw, Executive Director of Starlight’s Northwest chapter, said “Starlight’s programs can only happen through the generous support of others in our community like the CFOS Foundation. They are a model on how granting foundations can engage with charitable efforts in our community. We at Starlight are very grateful for the grant and professional support we are receiving from the CFOS Foundation.”
