Build a Better Future: Support Space Foundation Education Programs

Written by: developer

Contributions to the Space Foundation help fund:

  • Teacher professional development courses
  • Interactive classroom programs
  • Compelling educational exhibits

Space Foundation education programs open up possibilities for students of all grade levels - from PreK to college - so they can reach their highest potential. Every contribution, no matter the size, helps launch the next generation of space leaders.

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.
