Join us for the virtual event of the year! The Jeannette Rankin Foundation motto is to do good work and have FUN, all while empowering women to shine through education! We're wrapping that all together with the STAR Party on November 5th, 2020.

Don't miss out on an evening of compelling Scholar stories with Monica Kaufman Pearson, the Academic Game of LIFE, and so much more!

In light of the pandemic, we plan to celebrate completely online this year with friends across the country from Atlanta, NYC, Montana and the West Coast. We are over the moon excited that Monica Pearson is our emcee for the evening.

Together we are working to empower women through education by raising $100,000 for scholarships! Each one of you has the ability to impact a woman's life forever through the STAR Party. All you have to do is sign up to fundraise! We'll recognize our highest fundraiser as our "STAR of the Party!" Get in on the action now!

Sponsorship Opportunities

Are you and your business looking for ways to give back to the community, especially through empowering women to shine through education? Look no further!

We invite you to sponsor the 2020 STAR Party and empower women to shine!

On November 5th, 2020, JRF will be hosting our Star Party completely online. It’s a fun, virtual cocktail hour fundraising event, with compelling Scholar stories, an engaging video game, and a big focus on social media and peer-to-peer fundraising for guests. We all work together to raise as much money as possible to fund the scholarships that the JRF distributes to incredibly deserving women.

The nature of the STAR Party provides the potential for exponential reach through this event. If you’re looking for a great way to get your organization’s name out there in the Athens community while supporting an incredible cause, this is it! In prior years, our event produced incredible reach via social media and website connections.

  • The 2019 event website had nearly 37,000 visitors.
  • 2019 event related social media reached over 80,000 people.

Each STAR Party sponsor’s logo and direct website link will be added to our event website and featured on social media, which means your organization will benefit from the traffic we receive! You also will be highlighted during the event, with a crowd of hundreds across the country.

The proceeds from the STAR Party will go towards furthering our mission of providing scholarships and support to low-income women aged 35 and older across the U.S. to build better lives through post-secondary education. Since JRF was founded in 1976, we have provided more than 1,300 scholarships valued at $3.25 million to 1,000 women nationwide. Did you know that a woman with a Bachelor’s Degree makes an average of $822,000 more over her lifetime than a woman with just her High School Diploma? College education is the single best way for a woman to break the cycle of poverty, and JRF Scholars are doing just that! This last year, 86% of JRF Scholars either graduated or kept working towards their degrees, while the national average is only 31%!

We hope you’ll join us as a sponsor for the 2020 STAR Party. With every dollar given, you help open the door to education for women who are determined to work and earn a better life for themselves and their families.
