Become a Blue Star Families Supporter Right now!

Since Blue Star Families hung out our shingle, we have relied on our vast talent pool of military family members working virtually from bases around the country and have routinely worked miracles by relying on countless volunteer hours and a “can-do” attitude.  Although that moxie will ensure our continued success, we need to seek the generosity of individuals, foundations, and corporate partnerships to effect real change for military families. Although BSF is a young nonprofit, we have a proven record of success.


We have received two A+ audits for fiscal years 2009 and 2010 and Blue Star Families has obtained the GuideStar Exchange Seal, demonstrating our commitment to transparency. Blue Star Families, Inc. is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation. Your donation is tax deductible. And Blue Star Families was recently included in The Patriot’s Initiative’s listing of the very best nonprofits providing services to the military, locally, regionally and nationally. All qualifying nonprofits have been evaluated on eight critical criteria to determine their level of effectiveness, efficiency and use of best practices in their work.

Your gift of support, no matter the size, helps us to reach out to more military families.  No gift is too small.  When added together, the gifts we receive help us ensure that we can continue to create great support programs, connect military families with each other, and empower family members to make military life more sustainable. 

If you are interested in corporate sponsorship or planned giving please contact: Liz Boring, Development Manager at lboring@bluestarfam.org

With your help, BSF can embark on an aggressive plan to grow our membership around the country.  We also see the great need for planning events and programs that support our National Guard and Reserve families.  These families are spread across the nation sometimes away from bases, so including them in Blue Star Families is both critical and challenging.  All of our programs are also meant to empower our members to help create solutions to the needs they see in their own communities.  We feel it is mission-critical to continue to partner with other non-profits that are already doing excellent work for military families and help them stay in tune and in touch with the people they serve.

"Blue Star Families continues to surprise me by its unwavering commitment and creativity in supporting military families. BSF's energy, innovation and dedication continue to win the support of military families who understand the importance of representation and advocacy for military families. BSF promotes resiliency and quality-of-life issues that positively influence the military community.

Blue Star Families is a dynamic, high-impact organization that effortlessly navigates grass-roots engagement and services for military families with high-quality public awareness efforts. Their reach extends to Active Duty, Guard, and Reserve families across the force, as well as in DC, the Pentagon, the entertainment community, and elsewhere. 

BSF is, as importantly, a joy to work with. We have partnered together on events, initiatives, and service projects involving senior members of the Administration, the Pentagon, and more. On every occasion the BSF team proved exceptionally talented, friendly, and flexible."
