About Stars for Scholars
Stars for Scholars is a nationwide fundraiser to benefit Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation (Fallen Patriots) from July through September 2018. Over 50 Family Entertainment Centers, water parks, and amusement parks across the country are joining forces to help ensure a bright future for Gold Star children.
When people donate, they write their name on a paper gold star to recognize their contribution in helping military kids who’ve lost a parent while serving our country.
Stars for Scholars is inspired by Putt for the Fallen, a 3-year fundraising event which raised over $50,000 at miniature golf facilities for Fallen Patriots.
The soldiers who died to protect American freedom deserve to have their children looked after. Nearly 20,000 kids across the nation have lost a parent in the line of duty over the past 35 years. Through scholarships and educational counseling, Fallen Patriots helps bridge the $32,000 gap between government assistance programs and the coast of a four-year college degree Gold Star children face.
We believe investing in the future of Gold Star children is one of the best ways to honor the sacrifice of a fallen hero. You can join the movement by purchasing a gold star at a participating location, or you can donate directly on this page.
“A college education is the key to a bright future for any child and the generosity of our supporters is making those hopes and dreams come true,” notes David Kim, co-founder and CEO of Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation. “We are honored by the support of the thousands of individuals and companies across America who have answered this call. Not every patriot wears a uniform and we are deeply grateful to all those who are rendering this important service to our military and their families.”
