Endowment Gifts

Endowment Gifts

Endowment donations are invested. Each year, a portion of the income from the investment is used to address immediate needs at Starlight, while any remaining funds are reinvested to help support Starlight for a lifetime.

Your gift can go support one of the following existing endowment funds:

  1. General Endowment – This fund ensures Starlight is financially equipped for years to come and allows us to continue to create world-class arts experiences, maintain our historic venue, provide impactful community engagement programming and bring dreams for a bigger, better Starlight to life!
  2. Community Engagement Endowment – Support of Starlight’s Community Engagement endowment helps Starlight continue to give back to the Kansas City community through valuable arts education and access for tens of thousands of youth every year.
  3. Vincent Legacy Scholarship Endowment – This endowment supports Starlight’s commitment to inclusivity by ensuring future minority students are provided with financial assistance to pursue a career in the performing arts.
