Fundraiser for Digital Planetarium System from Digitalis Education Solutions
We invite you to join us in opening a window from Juneau to the Universe.
A digital planetarium system will be an out of this world educational tool.
Help us continue to provide free astronomy education in Juneau to the public, school classes and community groups.
This new planetarium system will provide improved astronomy education in Juneau.
In 2019, we received two grants totaling $35,000 and raised over $17,000 from donations and fundraising.events. We received $25,000 from the Rasmusson Foundation and a $10,000 matching grants from Juneau Community Foundation's Blackwell Fund.These funds were added to funds raised in previous years. By November, 2019 we placed an order for a new fixed Digitarium Lambda Projection System.
After delivery and training, we aim to have a grand opening in January, 2020.
We will then be able to offer exciting new programming to the public, school classes and community groups free of charge as always.
Our major donors will be invited to a pre-launch event.
Donors of $500 or more are offered a free private planetarium show.
