Help Queensland kids thrive.

Donations & Sponsorship

We couldn’t make the impact we do without the support of generous donors and sponsors.

Find out how you can help disadvantaged Queensland children thrive by downloading a Little Stars Foundation Information Kit.

As a registered charity with DGRI status, all donations over $2 are tax deductible. Thanks for your support!

Fundraise with your school, colleagues or friends.

Want to support the Little Stars Foundation? Have fun and challenge your team to a run, swim, head shave, walk. Or raise money with a bake sale, morning tea, trivia night, music gig, BBQ, casual day – the sky’s the limit. Every dollar helps, and remember that all donations of $2 and over are tax deductible.

"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world”

Educational Grant Scholarships

Educational Grant scholarships give children living in foster, kinship and residential care access to support outside of school that they wouldn’t otherwise have access to. This includes access to a school bag and items for school including a lunch box, stationery and the like, assistance with school uniforms if needed and individualised educational supports, as well as help with access to devices.

Children living in foster, kinship and residential care show lower achievement rates overall on the National Minimum Standards in NAPLAN tests than all other Qld Students. Students in out-of-home care are less likely to complete their high school education or go on to tertiary education. 

69% of youth involved in the youth justice system had experienced or been impacted by Domestic and family violence. 63% of youth involved in the youth justice system were totally disengaged from education, training or employment One third of serious repeat offenders among Qld youth are living in foster, kinship and residential care. 

It doesn’t need to be this way. The key to breaking the cycle and helping children heal from trauma is to provide them with supportive early intervention programs, which help them feel safe and enable them to build positive relationships, re-engage with learning, catch up to their peers and thrive at school.

Sponsor a Child’s Learning

Sponsor a child to be part of the Little Stars Learners program.

Our Little Stars Learners program provides support to children living in foster, kinship and residential care.  Help them catch up to their peers, engage with school and have the hope of a brighter future.
Help them close the education gap and have hope for a brighter future.
