Skylight Stars

Skylight Stars was established in 1998 to recognize those special donors who have made special gifts to Skylight in one or more of the following ways: capital or endowment initiatives, trusts and bequests, and planned gifts. We thank them for their very generous support.

Members’ names (listed below) are permanently listed on the Wall of Stars in the Broadway Theatre Center. Stars are also listed in program books, newsletters, the Annual Report and other materials, as appropriate. Finally, members are invited to exclusive Skylight Stars events.
