Rising Star Program

About The Rising Star Program

The Rising Star Program honors youth organizations or individuals 18 years of age or younger whose contributions to the CalvertHealth Foundation work to make a difference in our community. If there is a cause or project which you would like to support, we would like to help you bring your passion to life through a gift to CalvertHealth Foundation.

Here’s How YOU Can Become a Rising Star

Each year the Foundation is looking for those who will run for a cause in the 5K Family Fun Run/Walk held in October on beautiful Solomons Island in support of cancer care. All proceeds from the event go toward the Sheldon E. Goldberg Center for Breast Care. Or, throughout the year, the Foundation is looking for volunteers for one of its events or to distribute materials. Young leaders like you can make a monetary donation in support of CalvertHealth Foundation’s fundraising efforts. There are numerous areas where funds are appreciated and needed. Perhaps your club or organization has a mission about which you feel passionate – many students rally together to battle breast cancer in support of The Sheldon E. Goldberg Center for Breast Care. Other students are excited about the current expansion project taking place at CalvertHealth and have contributed to our capital campaign to help build this important new addition.

North Star Society

Rising Stars who raise $1,000 or more and complete 40+ hours of volunteer service to CalvertHealth in a school year will receive recognition in the North Star Society, a program which honors extraordinary philanthropic support from our youth community. Rising Stars, both individuals and teams/club, who reach this level of giving will receive a CalvertHealth North Star pin at the annual Rising Star Banquet along with an additional college recommendation from the CalvertHealth President and CEO.

Rising Stars who achieve North Star Society designation are asked to complete their North Star Society documentation no later than March 1 of the current school year.
