Donations Sought for school trips to the planetarium

Starting in November, free school classes will resume at the planetarium. Our priority is K to 5th grade students. Some classes will need to be bused to the planetarium, and each round trip is $105. We are contributing to busing expenses with a grant from the  Douglas-Dornan Foundation Fund and donations. If you would like to contribute any amount towards these field trips, click image below.

If you don't use PayPal or wish to make a recurring donation, use button below.

After we receive your donation, we will contact you to see if you have a preference on how we use your gift.
