Star Fund

Lon Chaney, Jr. Hollywood Walk of Fame “Star Fund”


The Lon Chaney, Jr. “Star Fund” was established to help the Chaney estate raise funds and awareness to procure a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

The Hollywood Walk of Fame is an internationally-recognized Hollywood icon. Each year, an average of 200 nominations are submitted to the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce Walk of Fame selection committee. The committee awards a star to approximately 20-24 celebrities a year, but only one celebrity is chosen for the posthumous star. This is a difficult decision since there are so many deserving individuals. It is understood that the cost of installing a star on the Walk of Fame upon approval is $30,000 and the sponsor of the nominee accepts the responsibility for arranging for payment to the Hollywood Historic Trust, a 501(c)3 charitable foundation. The funds are used to pay for the creation/installation of the star and ceremony, as well as maintenance of the Walk of Fame. The Hollywood Walk of Fame and the Hollywood Sign are registered trademarks of the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce.

The Lon Chaney, Jr. “Star Fund” is open to all who wish to be a part of this effort.  No amount is too small and is much appreciated. These donations are secured in a special account and will be utilized only towards the procurement of a star. The account balance is posted on the site and all  contributors are recognized.


What better way to honor this remarkable individual. We truly appreciate all who have contributed and know we will someday celebrate the joining of Lon Chaney, Jr. with his father, Bela, Boris, Vincent and all the others on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame.

If you would like to contribute, please send your donation along with the signed petition and mail to Lon Chaney,  Jr. “Star Fund,” P.O. Box 4550, Palm Springs, CA 92263. You may also just show your support by emailing the signed petition to

Thank you and God Bless,

The Chaneys
