FOMDP a 501(c)(3) was formed in 2014 to support the planetarium and
astronomy education in Juneau. We are fundraising for a new digital projector. The planetarium has been run by volunteers since November, 1991.
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.
When the non-profit formed, the organization of planetarium remained as before: Presentations and events continued to be (almost always) free and are given by volunteers reflecting their diverse knowledge and interest in astronomy.
A person must volunteer for at least a year before being becoming a board member.
You may contact any board member with questions, ideas, donations, etc.
