Can I make a donation under €1,000 to sponsor a star?
Donations under €1,000 are Christmas Gifts.
Select 'Donate a Christmas Gift' on the top of the page. You may choose your own donation amount and your gift will be displayed under our virtual Christmas tree.
What are the payment options?
You will be able to arrange payment by credit card or bank transfer. Once you have completed your sponsorship form, you will receive a receipt to confirm your sponsorship.
If you wish to speak to our team about payment options, please email email@example.com.
When can I get involved?
You can sponsor a star anytime up until Friday 22 December 2023.
The early bird gets the sparkle – the sooner you choose your star and become a sponsor, the longer your company logo will be on display under our Christmas tree, located on Dublin’s bustling Grafton Street during the busy festive season.
The stars created during this time will also remain visible on the website so you can continue to view and share your star into the New Year.
How can I access the digital supporter assets?
Once you have completed the sponsorship form, you will receive an email confirmation of your sponsorship. This will include your receipt and an exclusive link to the digital supporters assets which you may download.
How can I share my company logo?
You can upload your company logo as you complete your sponsorship form. Alternatively, you may email firstname.lastname@example.org with your company logo.
Please ensure it is a high quality version and suitable for print (jpeg or png file).
Where will my company logo appear?
Company logos will be featured on the 'Sponsor A Star' website, and will also be featured in print on a panel of the Focus Ireland Christmas tree on Grafton Street, Dublin.
Christmas, Platinum, and Gold star sponsors will also have their company logo featured in a ‘Thank You’ piece in the Irish Times (January 2024).
Focus Ireland may also share updates on our social media channels.
Do you require my company logo?
No, it is entirely optional to share your company logo if you wish to be featured as part of 'Sponsor A Star'.
If you wish to remain anonymous, you may choose one of our placeholder profile images instead of a logo and alter the name appearing on your star. You can also reach our team on email@example.com.
How can I find my star?
Alternatively, you may hover over your star on the virutal tree to view it.
Where can I see my star?
All stars will be featured on the ‘Sponsor A Star’ website for you to view, download and share with your colleagues, customers, and wider networks.
Company logos will be displayed on the panels of the Focus Ireland Christmas tree on Dublin’s Grafton Street, visible to an estimated 1.1 million people passing through Grafton Street during the festive season.

Where is the tree located?
The tree is located on the top of Grafton Street, Dublin, opposite the entrance to Stephen's Green park and Stephen's Green Shopping Centre.
When will the panels be installed around the tree?
We have four panels surrounding our Christmas tree, and each one will be installed weekly from 27th November with our star sponsors’ company logos.
How will the Christmas tree be decorated?
Focus Ireland will decorate the Christmas tree with stars (yellow stars featuring the Focus Ireland logo) on Friday 1st December. We will also arrange the weekly installation of the tree panels around the base of the Christmas tree from 27th November. These panels will feature the company logos of our star sponsors, and will be visible to the public.
Signage around the tree will identify the tree as ‘A Christmas tree raising funds for those who are homeless or at risk of losing their home’.
Dublin City Council are kindly supporting Focus Ireland's 'Sponsor A Star' campaign by allowing us to adopt the Christmas tree, and they will decorate the tree with lights as per their schedule.
