Donate Now

Donations are the lifeblood of New Star.  Translated into services and support, the funds we raise help persons with developmental disabilities to become more independent, gain authority over their own lives, and ultimately improve their quality of life. We rely on contributions to aid our efforts to enhance the lives of individuals with developmental disabilities.

The most common donations received at New Star are gifts of cash.  Click here to make your donation online now.

You might consider making a planned gift, such as naming New Star as beneficiary to an insurance policy, IRA, retirement plan or charitable remainder trust.  These types of gifts can provide tax savings to you and your heirs. Also, keep New Star in mind when updating your Will/Living Trust.  You should contact your tax advisor to learn best how to maximize your tax-deductible contribution.

We will be happy to take in-kind donations.  Please review our current wish list.  In addition to deducting these donated items from your taxes, you’ll be cleaning up your house/garage.

Speaking of garages, we’ve partnered with The Arc to accept cars, vans, trucks, boats with a trailer, and even recreational vehicles.  Simply complete this online donation form and choose “IL New Star Services” as the Arc chapter you wish to receive the proceeds from the sale.
