Like all not-for-profit organizations, Star Island and the Lifespan Religious Education Conference rely heavily on donations to make ourselves sustainable. It is a goal of ours to offer aid to anyone who wants to come to LRE Week, and so during the week we have a few fundraisers to help support the scholarship fund. As you will note in the Financial Aid section, Star Island also offers scholarships; these scholarship programs are specifically for our conference, and to aid people who want to be part of LRE week and who might not get to go any other way.

Bring something to donate, some cash to bid with, and know that it goes to a great cause.
So bring a few extra dollars and help make Star Island, and LRE Week, accessible for everyone. Thank you for your generosity.
