The charity that I would like a portion of the proceeds given to is not listed on your website?
Unfortunately, we only give a portion of the proceeds to the charity partners listed on our website. We have marketing agreements with these charitable organizations and they work very hard to promote us to their supporters. It is only fair that they benefit from our unique program.  

I think my charity organization would like to get involved with the Star Foundation. What can I do?
If you know of an organization that needs help with their fundraising efforts we would love to talk to them about our unique partnership opportunity. Send e-mail to support@spacedreamsinc.com  and include the name of the organization and any contact information you may have.

Can I choose the constellation I would like my star named?                                         Unfortunately, because of the way our star database names stars you cannot choose the constellation you would like your star named.

Is the Star Foundation the only organization that can name stars?                                          The Star Foundation's products are intended for the sole purpose as a unique "novelty" gift one can share with their friends and family. Only the International Astronomical Union has the authority to assign names to stars, but they only recognize stars by assigning them numbers. The Star Foundation internally recognizes and acknowledges the names it assigns to stars in the Star Foundation Archives and will never name a Star more than once. The Star Foundation also acknowledges the fact there may be people who do not officially recognize the names they assign to the stars.  We have no control over any other entity operating a similar service or the business of any scientific, governmental or other body.

How does the Star Foundation determine the percentage that goes to its Charity Partners? The percentage that goes to our Charity Partners is determined by the percentage of advertising dollars that were spent to acquire a Star order. We have designated 25% of each Star order's proceeds to go towards advertising. If an order originates directly from our website or Charity Partners website we pay the Charity Partner the entire 25% of the Star proceeds. If an order originates from one of our marketing campaigns, we pay the Charity Partner 25% of the Star proceeds minus the cost of the marketing campaign. Our marketing campaign cost are always varying, therefore the amount we pay our Charity Partners also varies.                                   

Can I name a Star after my pet?
Yes, you are allowed to name a Star after anything or anyone.

I think its great you work directly with charitable organizations! Why do you give such a large percentage of the proceeds to these charitable organizations?
The Star Foundation has marketing partnerships with their charity partners and is very proud to be able to work directly with these organizations in order to support their causes.
