Stars in the House for Ukraine is being underwritten thanks to the generosity of the Berlanti Family Foundation.

Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, the philanthropic heart of Broadway, will match dollar for dollar every donation made during the Stars in the House telethon, up to $50,000. Those making donations will see their impact doubled thanks to the match, which means donors will provide twice as many emergency kits, help twice as many families get temporary shelter or give twice as many kids medical care.

"For almost 90 years, the International Rescue Committee (IRC) has been responding to the world's worst humanitarian crises. In Ukraine and Poland, IRC mobilized quickly to assist the vulnerable and displaced by war that privileges impunity and autocracy over accountability and self-determination," says David Miliband, President and CEO of IRC. "We are grateful to James, Seth, and everyone who will be joining this special 10-hour Stars in the House marathon to draw attention to the needs of those affected by the war in Ukraine, and to give audiences around the world a way to help."

"The circumstances for those who've stayed in Ukraine and the millions of refugees fleeing for their safety is harrowing," Broadway Cares Executive Director Tom Viola said. "We're extraordinarily proud to join Seth and James and all at Stars in the House in this important effort. For more than 30 years, the theater community has been among the first to provide immediate assistance for those in need and we're again responding with action. Broadway Cares - on behalf of our entire community - is proud to quickly and responsibly support those doing the lifesaving, on-the-ground work across Ukraine. By providing this matching gift, we hope we inspire even more of us to stand with Ukraine."
