The Rocketown Star Society is an elite group of donors giving $1,000 or more in a fiscal year. Star Society members may be monthly sustaining donors, or may give a single donation. It is entirely the choice of each Star!

Donations are unrestricted, meaning these funds may be used for any need that arises, such as: Summer Camp Scholarships, supplies and/or food inventory for the Rocketown Healthy Meal Plan & Scholarship Program, the purchase of new technology for programs like Rocketown Productions, or general operations costs.

Benefits of Rocketown Star Society Members:

  • Recognition in the Rocketown Annual report, published on our website at the close of each Fiscal Year.
  • Invitation to a private donor recognition event at the home of Michael W. Smith.
  • Priority seating at annual events.
  • Hand-created cards and letters from Rocketown Kids benefiting from these important and generous gifts.
