YOUR SUPPORT IS NEEDED!

Even with considerable volunteer energy, operating North Star requires significant financial resources. Your generous donations can help with all of our initiatives outlined below.

ANNUAL CONFERENCE

North Star holds an annual U.S. conference which currently attracts almost 1,000 people. The attendees include individuals who personally identify as LGBT, their family members, friends and church leaders. There are significant costs associated with putting on a conference of this scale - venue rental, audio/visual equipment and staffing, etc… Admission cost is a barrier for many who wish to attend. Our hope is that through generous donations, we will be able to offer the conference at a lower cost to the attendees or, ideally, at no cost. This would make the conference more accessible to those who could benefit, as well as more lay church leaders who want to learn how they can be more supportive of those whom they serve.

WOMEN’S RETREAT

We are planning our first-ever women’s retreat. This is a wonderful opportunity for women to come together and learn from each other.

VOICES OF HOPE PROJECT

Our Voices of Hope project has amassed a library of over 70 stories presented as video and written essays. These personal, relatable narratives have blessed the lives of countless individuals and families. These video essays are costly to produce, and we are constrained only by the occasional lack of funding.

TRUE TO HIM PROJECT

Our True to Him project features stories similar to the Voices of Hope project, but in a short-form format. These brief videos and bios are meant to be easily shareable and quick to view.

LOCAL EVENTS

We have begun hosting local events such as Family Home Evenings and social outings where individuals come together to socialize, network and find support.

SOUTH AMERICA CONFERENCE

We are hosting our first-ever conference outside the U.S. in Lima, Peru. Thousands of individuals in Central and South America participate in North Star and benefit from our resources. There is great need to expand our efforts outside the United States. Proper funding will help us to expand our resources to those in need.

COUPLE’S RETREAT

Many of the families who participate in North Star are in traditional marriages. This can create a unique set of challenges and opportunities. We hold an annual couples retreat where married couples come together to share experiences, learn from each other and build supportive friendships.

JOURNEYS OF FAITH PROJECT

Our Journeys of Faith project features personal stories from individuals and families navigating the complicated subject of gender identity. We would like to expand our resources related to gender dysphoria.

ADMINISTRATIVE EXPENSES

While North Star is a peer-led organization, operated by the efforts of volunteers, there are still a number of administrative costs.


Even with considerable volunteer energy, operating North Star requires significant financial resources. Your generous donations can help with all of our initiatives outlined below.

  • Grow story projects and initiatives, such as the Voices of Hope, Journeys of Faith and True to Him projects.

  • Produce educational materials to help individuals, families, and church leaders

  • Grow our annual North America conference which currently attracts nearly 1,000 attendees and church leaders seeking resources and community. Financial contributions could help lower the cost to attendees, making the conference accessible to more individuals and families.

  • Expand our conferences to multiple countries in multiple languages, beginning with a Spanish-language conference in Peru.

Our hope is that the media we produce will inspire, uplift, guide, motivate, and educate those who are seeking answers, inspiration and community.

We believe that the work we are engaged in has the potential to bless millions of lives. And we need your help. North Star International is a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation, so your contributions are entirely tax deductible.
