Friends of the Marie Drake Planetarium
The planetarium has been run by volunteers since November, 1991.
In June, 2011 The Friends of the Marie Drake Planetarium (FOMDP) was formed.
It is a 501(c)(3). Donations are welcome.

The purpose of FOMDP is to promote astronomy education in Juneau including promoting, using and upgrading the Marie Drake Planetarium.
The board's primary goal is to raise funds for purchase of a new projector.
The planetarium will continue to be run as usual. Volunteers are encouraged to be involved with the Planetarium. Shows will continue to be free and reflect the interests and knowledge of volunteers.
