How You Can Support Tomorrow's Space Leaders

Written by: developer

Space Foundation education programs give teachers tools they can use to build skills, motivate students to learn and – ultimately – build a stronger workforce for our nation. And our education programs open up possibilities for students of all grade levels – from PreK to college – so that they can reach their highest potential. Your donation helps the Space Foundation deliver programs that will change our world.

Contributions to the Space Foundation support:

  • Engaging teacher courses
  • Interactive classroom programs 
  • Cutting-edge community forums
  • Compelling exhibits

Every contribution, no matter the size, helps launch the next generation.

The Space Foundation is a 501(c)3 global, nonprofit organization based in Colorado that has been providing teachers and students with standards-based, space-related educational programs since 1985, in support of our mission to advance space-related endeavors to inspire, enable and propel humanity.

The Space Foundation welcomes contributions to provide education programs for teachers and students. In-kind contributions could include services, materials, furnishings or space artifacts and tax credits are available for Colorado state income tax. A tax credit is a direct dollar-amount reduction in tax liability that is not affected by a tax bracket or any other criteria. The donor is also eligible for additional bracket-dependent federal and state deductions for contributions, as well. Because deductions can vary, donors should consult a tax advisor for details on specific tax liabilities.
